I essentially want a relatively simply "my account" page that is linked up to when new orders are created.
a) When a new order is created it has all of its statistics/tracking numbers etc logged into a file preferably xl
b) People could check the status of their order by logging in using their email address and see their orders.
c) Once they were to login they could see their different orders, with the tracking number (which is a link to track it on USPS) along with an order status (which basically states "on the way to us" "received and verifying" and "payment being sent to you" "payment delivered" so that users can see how their status is going.
d) Additionally, have a user friendly way where I can update the statuses as they are changed via the website.
e) If possible, have this order status update automatically based on the USPS shipping status via the tracking number
