Is there an eBay tracking API?

eBay does not have a Tracking API, however, eBay has developed its own API that could benefit both sellers and buyers. It has two services for its API, Buy API and Sell API. Buy API would benefit the merchants who want to expand their inventory to the customers virtually. Sell API would benefit the sellers who want to manage the customers’ purchase orders, fulfillment, or refunds. The sellers could also promote or advertise their products.

Can you track orders on eBay?

You are allowed to track your orders on eBay when you are given the tracking number of your order by the seller. Although please be aware that eBay shippers are not required to give you tracking numbers. However, you will still be notified of the duration of the seller processing your order and an estimated time of arrival of your order.

To track your order on eBay, you’d first have to log in to your account and then go to “My eBay” at the right top side of the page and click “Purchase History”. After that, you can choose which order you want to track. Below it, you should be able to see the status of the delivery. It should say something like “Delivered on..” or “This item has been shipped”.

For more details about your order, you click on “More actions” and then “View order details”. On this page, you can contact the seller to request a tracking number so you can get more tracking information.

While tracking your order on eBay may be efficient, it requires too many processes and steps. We recommended tracking your order using Ship24. All you need is your tracking number and you can copy that to our homepage so you can get real-time updates on your orders. Ship24 will be able to track your order with the same tracking number even if different couriers are handling your order.

How do I use Ship24’s tracking API?

To use Ship24’s tracking API, first, you need to create an account and choose a plan. Whether you chose the “per-shipment” or “per-call” plan, your next step is to go to the dashboard and generate an API key. Your API must be kept private and no should not be publicly accessible. Once you have generated an API key, you would need to follow some documentation and you’ll be able to get started in a few minutes!

You can check the pricing list to see which plan fits you best. We recommend choosing the “per-shipment” plan for most of the users since it offers extensive features, faster tracking information, and it has a predictable cost!

You will be given up to 10 free tracked shipments per month for any of the subscriptions you chose. If you need to request more plans or if you have any questions about our tracking API service, don’t hesitate to Contact Us.

What tracking does eBay use?

eBay sellers use different kinds of tracking depending on where they are physically at. Sellers who are shipping from the United States or the United Kingdom use the eBay Global Shipping Program. eBay sellers from China ships their packages through big postal couriers such as China Post, WINIT, or ePacket.

Consequently, once you have your tracking number, you can use Ship24 to be your trusted platform to give you up-to-date information on where your parcel is located. You can track up to 10 orders with your tracking number all at the same time! Just make sure you have copied the right tracking numbers so that our tracking system can trace and give you information on your orders. Ship24 can track parcels or orders to more than 1200 couriers and 10000 merchants and shops.

While Ship24’s tracking service is free up to 10 orders or parcels, you can create an account to save your parcels. When you save your parcels, you will get email notifications on the status and locations of your orders or parcels.
