Searching for the best WooCommerce shipment tracking plugin?
If you want to manage and provide tracking info to customers, Advanced Shipment Tracking (AST) and WooCommerce’s Shipment Tracking plugin are two of the most popular options.
AST is the most popular WooCommerce shipment tracking plugin, with a free version and 60,000+ active installs at WordPress.org. While the free version already stacks up favorably, there’s also a premium version that adds even more features if you need them. You can learn more about it in our in-depth AST review.
On the other hand, Shipment Tracking comes directly from the WooCommerce team. However, it’s not quite as popular (20,000+ active installs) and it only comes in a premium version.
