How to get your order's tracking number
When the seller has shipped our order, it will go to the list of shipped orders, and the seller will attach a tracking number that we will be able to see in the order detail. If we are on the computer, we will go to the list of orders and when we pass the mouse over the button “Locate Order” or “Track Order”, as we show you below.
We will see the tracking number and the last states through which the package has passed. If we click on the button, it will take us to a page with more information.
If we are browsing AliExpress from its mobile app, we will go to the list of orders, enter “To Be Shipped”, and click on the “Tracking” button. It will take us to another page where we will see the tracking number and the list of movements of the package.
Tracking your order
Now that you have the tracking number of your AliExpress order, you can see where the package is going and if you are close to receiving it. Remember that we can only track certified orders, as explained in the AliExpress Shipping Methods Guide.
Most packages sent by registered mail have a tracking number starting with R and ending in CN, although there are many different tracking numbers.
In general, we can say that orders of small value (less than $5) are usually sent by regular mail (no tracking), and even if they have a tracking number of their own, if they show any movement when tracking it will be only while they are in China. Once it leaves the country of origin, it can no longer be tracked.
In any case, to see the tracking number information, we can do it from the AliExpress website (as we have shown you in the previous step), use the website of the postal service of your country or other sites such as 17track.net, which is one of the ones that shows more information than any of the previous ones.
If you have several packages and want to keep track of them, it is best to look for a mobile application that can track the numbers and inform us of status changes. Search in your app center, there are many: aftership, 17track, parcelsapp…. You simply have to add the tracking number and set up the alerts.
Let's put them in order of appearance (roughly) of the AliExpress shipping stages. These are all the steps of an AliExpress shipment:

Frequently Asked Questions
We read your comments and we also try to solve all the doubts you may have. During these years, we have received a lot of questions about AliExpress shipments, so we are going to answer the most frequent ones.
The tracking number says that the package has been delivered but I have not received it
Main article: AliExpress says delivered but not received
This is one of the doubts that you leave us most frequently down in the blog comments. In this case, we recommend you to talk to the seller, it is possible that they have made a mistake when putting the tracking number and has given you another customer's. If they tell you it is fine or simply does not answer, you will have to open a dispute.
To prove that the package has not arrived, even though it says that it has been delivered, it is best to ask for a receipt from the shipping company (post office), but they often refuse to provide this type of proof. An alternative is to use a site called trackitonline.ru.
Although it is in Russian, by using the Google Chrome browser you can easily translate it. By entering the tracking number, it will show you where it has been delivered. By attaching this information to the dispute, you will ensure that AliExpress will close the dispute in your favor.
I think the seller has given me a fake tracking number
Main article: AliExpress tracking number not working
Many times we may have doubts about the tracking number, for example, because the tracking has started to work before we have placed the order.
You can ask the seller, many times it is a mistake on their part. If the seller says that everything is fine, we can give them the benefit of the doubt, and in case the order does not arrive, we can open a dispute as in the previous case.
The tracking number shows no movement, should I be concerned?
Main article: AliExpress package is not arriving
From the time the seller ships the package, the tracking number can take up to 10 business days to become functional. Also, if it is an ordinary shipment, it may never show movement. In any case, if you are concerned, the best thing to do is to send a message to the seller.
Why are there two tracking numbers?
Many times we see two tracking numbers appear in the order detail. Most of the time, this is a mistake by the seller or the carrier when giving the tracking number. When correcting the tracking number, two different tracking numbers appear. If you're worried about this, and as in the previous case, it is best to ask the seller.
Where does my package arrive and will it be delivered to my home?
The package will arrive at the address that you have typed at the time of placing the order, although in some countries it may vary. You have to add an address where you can be reached, never the address of your post office because in that case the package will be returned to the country of origin.
Who will deliver my order? What is the shipping company?
If you have placed the order with the basic or economy shipping service, the delivery will be made by the postal company that normally delivers letters and other packages (state postal service). If you have paid for a private courier service, it will be delivered by their couriers.
Can I send my package to a mailbox?
At the moment AliExpress does not accept deliveries to PO boxes, so it is best to put an address where you can be reached to pick up the package and sign for it if necessary. Many people send their packages to work, where we spend most of our time and where we can be reached during post office delivery hours.
I have moved, can I change my shipping address?
If you plan to change your address in a short time, it is best not to place orders on AliExpress because neither the seller nor the post office can change the delivery address if the order has already been shipped, so keep this in mind before making your purchases.
My tracking shows as “cancelled”, do I have to open a dispute?
If you get a “cancelled” message on your order tracking, the first thing to do is to contact the seller to check with your carrier to find out what has happened. Usually this message appears when the order has been returned to the seller and will not reach you.
They will probably send you the order again or refund your money by opening a dispute. In our article order cancelled on AliExpress we give you more information.
Tracking indicates that my shipment has been stopped by customs
All orders go through customs twice: in the country of origin (to detect that the content is not illegal) and in the country of destination (to check if it complies with the customs regulations of your country). You don't need to worry as most packages from China pass through customs if they are small, light and not bulky. But we recommend you to read our AliExpress Customs Guide for more information.
I have other questions about my shipments that I can't resolve, what can I do?
If you have other doubts or questions about your shipments, the best thing to do is to contact the AliExpress seller and ask your questions. AliExpress also has a FAQ section on its platform, which you can access by clicking here. At the bottom of this page you can contact AliExpress through a chat or a form.
My AliExpress order is not moving or not arriving, what should I do?
Another common question you ask is, what happens if the AliExpress order does not move. You should keep in mind that there are different types of shipments, cheap shipments do not have tracking and that is why the status may only be updated while it is in China and when it has been delivered.
Sometimes tracking numbers may take a while to update and all tracking messages may appear all at once after a few days. But if there has been no movement for several days, the best thing to do is to contact the AliExpress seller or consider opening a dispute or complaint on AliExpress.
Customs cleared, how long does it take to arrive home?
When it has finally passed through customs, then there's less time left until we receive our order. However, many times you ask us why it has been several days and there seems to be no movement. But we still recommend a little patience. Packages are arriving faster and faster from China but delivery in your country may take longer depending on the workload of the company delivering the orders.
In addition, it is common that they skip states and suddenly appear in delivery after several days stopped. If it has been a long time, we recommend you to contact the seller and the shipping company for more information.
I have received a customs notification, what do I do?
If your package has been stopped, you will receive a letter asking you to go to customs or for a verification of the payment of the product in order to calculate the customs costs according to what the product has cost.
Even if the seller has put a lower amount, we recommend you to play it safe and say the real price of the product, otherwise customs could make a valuation and it will probably be above what you paid, raising the costs.

Tracking number does not work
There can be many reasons, but don't stress because most of them are not that worrisome. You have the full explanation in the article AliExpress tracking number not working.
How can I avoid customs on AliExpress?
There are several tricks you can use to reduce the chances of having your order stopped:
- Place small, low-cost orders. If you are going to order more than one thing from the same seller, you can separate the orders.
- Choose “tax free” sellers: there are sellers that already include customs charges.
- Buy from national warehouses. For example, if you order to an EU country from an EU warehouse you will not pay customs.

When it comes to tracking a package or parcel, buyers should note that the tracking number, ID, or code and the order number will be different..

Tracking parcel from aliexpress is only possible by the parcel dispatch number, when the order number is used only by the Aliexpress platform itself and does not take part in tracking.. However, the seller notifies the delivery service when preparing the order, and it already assigns the tracking number to the parcel.. With this track code, you can easily find out the location of the order by simply entering the number in the field above and clicking the "Track package" button.. You can track the location of the order from the trading platform by the track number, which will be displayed in the details of the order immediately after the status changes to Sent..

Aliexpress order numbers are similar to the following 569483717895060, 40782651925480, 46773207286731, while the tracking numbers look like this: YT72560621444006800, ZH218944520TK, RY505153973CN..

What this means is that the sellers ship their products to Amazon.. One problem with the AliExpress Standard Shipping is that not all shipments have a tracking number.. You can also provide this tracking number to your customer, and you can show them how to use 17 Track to know the status of their order..

Extend your buyer protection to allow more time for your package to arrive.. Some cheaper shipping methods do not update after the package leaves China or arrives at your country.. See also the previous question, delivery can be very slow and packages can wait for a long time at the same location.. Aliexpress and the seller can not do anything about this, so the only thing you can do is wait until it gets delivered or until buyer protection runs out.. When your order arrives later than that, you can't open a dispute about it.. Especially check the buyer protection timer in the order detail, it is the only thing that really counts.. If the order is still active on the website, continue to wait until your package arrives or buyer protection runs out.. The seller didn't ship using the shipping method I paid for.. Don't open a dispute right away after shipping , as you could need that dispute when there's something wrong with your item or if it doesn't get delivered at all.. Due to the pandemic and the shipping delays, Aliexpress currently requires that you wait until the buyer protection has expired before you can open a dispute.. Please look at my tracking code, will my package arrive?. Lots of times tracking doesn't even update before the package actually arrives.. Should I order now or wait?
To maintain a competitive advantage over China-based merchants, it’s important to understand what ePacket shipping is and why it has become a popular shipping method from China and Hong Kong.. In the past, China EMS was the only affordable and reasonable option to ship consumer products overseas to customers.. In 2011, the United States Postal Service formally announced ePacket, a new shipping service and agreement with Hongkong Post and eBay China allowing packages from China and Hong Kong to receive USPS First-Class Mail service along with delivery confirmation.. Before ePacket, products were shipped to the US from China via sea.. You will often see ePacket offered as a shipping option by merchants in China on websites such as eBay, AliExpress, and Alibaba.. However, any merchant in China and Hong Kong can offer ePacket shipping if the package meets the requirements for an ePacket delivery.. The package also must be shipped from either China or Hong Kong to one of the 44 eligible ePacket countries.. ePacket tracking gives customers end-to-end tracking at no additional cost, letting them easily monitor and locate their package on official websites, such as EMS , USPS , or China Post.. This allows you, as a store owner dropshipping with AliExpress, to offer free shipping.. It should say “ePacket” along with the tracking number if the package was indeed shipped using ePacket.. ePacket tracking numbers usually start with “L.” If there is no ePacket tracking number, it’s likely the package was shipped using a different method.. These are your customers.. ePacket is a shipping option third-party logistics (3PL) companies in China and Hong Kong offer to ecommerce businesses.
Let us look at the most popular dropshipping products on AliExpress and define the most trending niches using statistics given by Google Trends..

However, if the dropshipping order doesn’t arrive to the customer on time, you must send a refund request within 15 days of your order placement.. Finally, have a question about managing your AliExpress dropshipping orders or AliExpress shipping tracking?
The reliability of the Standard Shipping service nowadays is quite good, and it is one of the safest shipping methods offered by the platform.. In Standard delivery, there are about 15 to 45 days to receive your package, which is quite reasonable.. Aliexpress standard shipping packages often cost under $10..
