Our carriers ship millions of packages a day. Unfortunately, there are some issues from time to time, such as loss of tracking, delayed tracking, etc. In most cases, orders are recovered and delivered. In the event of a lost package, we can help you with the claims process.
Note: ShipBob does not cover the cost of replacement orders.

Tracking Updates:

Read more on how to view tracking information.

  • Once an order has tracking information, it is guaranteed that it has left our FCs.
  • Our carriers do NOT scan each package upon pick-up at the FC. First tracking updates and scans are done at the carrier's facilities. These updates often take several business days to occur.
  • You can also subscribe for order updates and get notifications as soon as the tracking information is updated.
  • If an order does not ever get tracking updates, we will follow our No Carrier Tracking policy.

No Carrier Tracking Policy:

If an order is labeled and doesn't get tracking updates within 5 business days we will apply a credit for the manufacturing cost of the items lost and also a credit of the fulfillment cost. A claim cannot be filed in this case.
