Close How to show the delivery status of an order? Contributor: Tony / Date: 26 August 2012 / Time: 15:00 (JST/UTC+9) / Post #213 URL

Hello everyone,
When you have any purchase in Amazon, Ebay, etc, you can see that we can check if our item has been shipped or not.
It means that a customer can see the status of his order ("not confirmed yet", "has been shipped", "not shipped yet").
I also want to show the delivery status to my customers so that they know when their item is shipped.
Does everybody know how to do it? Is it possible in OCNK?
Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
