EzTrack Component

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

Retrieves tracking data for any package shipped from origin to delivery.

Syntax

DPayments.DShipping.Eztrack

Remarks

The EzTrack component provides a standardized interface to all 3 supported carriers. This allows you to reduce the code needed to create an application supporting multiple carriers. For more fine grained control over settings specific to individual carriers you may wish to use the component that is specific to the carrier.

For a given tracking or reference number, this tool identifies the package(s) and provides detailed information about each package, including the current shipping status and the time and location of each scan while in transit. The EzTrack component supports tracking by tracking number, shipment identification number, or reference number. Using this component, you can find out up-to-the-minute specific details on shipping status, including the time and location of each scan as the package moves toward its final destination. And, this tracking information can be displayed in a customized format.

FedEx and UPS both support multiple package shipment tracking, but USPS does not.

When the TrackShipment method call of this component returns a response, it will either return a successful response document or an error document. An error may be returned at the top (response) level if there is a problem with the syntax of the request, or if a system error occurs.

In any of the above scenarios, if there is a problem with a specific identifier within the request, the response will raise an error that pertains to the specific identifier.

For more details on errors codes and descriptions, please refer to the Error Messages section.

To use this component, you must set the appropriate Account settings for the specified Provider.
