Use the 16 character parcel tracking code

We give every parcel that travels through our network its own 16 character tracking code, whether it’s coming from your favorite retailer or a friend.

You’ll need to get your parcel’s tracking number from its sender – retailers usually send this to you by email with information about your delivery.

Just enter this number into the tracker, above.

If your courier has tried to deliver your parcel they’ll leave a calling card that has an 8 digit number printed on it.  Enter this number in the box to get an update on your tracked postage.

You can track a parcel you’re returning in the same way as one you’re receiving.  All you need to do is enter the 16 character parcel tracking code into the tracker.  If you’re returning a parcel using a Print In-Store device, make a note of the long number underneath the printed label and enter it in the box above.
