Q: What is the reason of no tracking information for my parcel?
In general, the tracking information for a parcel needs one or two days to update after the carrier getting it. You’d better wait one or two days after it’s shipped and then track its status. For no tracking records of your tracking number, it may be caused because the sender hasn’t sent it. Or, you typed the numbers wrongly. You’d better contact the sender to make sure the parcel has been sent and you typed the correct number. If you still can't get any result, better contact the sender to ask if it’s traceable. For example: tracking number composed of 9 digits only belongs to China Post Ordinary Small Packet Plus. It couldn’t be tracked or only can be tracked when it’s in China.
Q: In the last many days I did not get any update. Where is my parcel? Is it lost on the way?
A : No more update doesn’t mean lost. There are many situations about this:
1. It may couldn’t be tracked after it leaves the first station of China because it’s China Post Ordinary Packet. Tracking number formats of China Post Ordinary Packet: UC123456789CN，123456789 . Most of the retailers on eBay, Wish, or Aliexpress like to use this way to send cheap price items.
2. It couldn’t be tracked after it leaves China. This also happens for China Post ordinary packet.
3. If the parcel has been exported, the shipping status will not be updated until the parcel arrives in the destination country. This period may last for 3-60 days depending on different shipping methods.
Q: My parcel was stuck at somewhere for some days. Could you update the information?
A: ChinaPostalTracking is a tracking website getting tracking data from different couriers and providing the tracking information to you for free. We are not logistics companies thus could do nothing for the delivery process. Only when the courier updates their data, could we update it accordingly. If you find your parcel stuck at somewhere over ten days, you’d better contact the local courier to check it for you.
Q: What should I do if the package delivery failed?
A: If tracking status showing ‘delivery failed’, it means the carrier has tried to deliver it to the recipient but couldn’t do it successfully because of the wrong address or the recipient couldn’t be connected through phone. When this happens, most of the carrier would keep the package at the post office for about two weeks. You need to contact the carrier as soon as possible to ask for redelivery. Or, it will be returned back to the sender after two weeks.
