    How to track an Amazon parcel on PC and phone. Most of the things you order from Amazon can be tracked to your home. You can find out where your Amazon package is from the Amazon website on your computer or via the mobile app. If the order is being shipped from Amazon Fulfillment, you can see the delivery on a real-time map on the day of delivery.


    If you want to track all of your orders in one app, including non-Amazon deliveries, you can use a third-party package delivery app like Parcel or Deliveries. Amazon has evolved into a well-oiled package delivery machine, which regularly ships more than a million packages every day. And tracking those packages has turned into a kind of science.



    You can easily track an Amazon package on your computer or phone, and in many cases even see where your delivery is on a map in real time. Here's everything you need to know about how to keep tabs on your Amazon packages as they travel to you.

    How to track an Amazon parcel using the Amazon tracking map

    In many cases, you can track the exact location of your package on the day of delivery. You can see exactly where your package is on a map and receive a status update indicating how many stops it is from your address. There are several ways to access the monitoring map: 

    • Find the tracking information for your delivery on your mobile app by following the steps in the previous section.
    • Tap the delivery notification on your phone.
    • In the delivery notification email, click Track your package

    I can't track my Amazon package

    It can be a frustrating experience to find that there is no tracking information for an Amazon package or that the tracking information does not appear to be up to date and accurate. If the estimated delivery date has passed and the package has not been delivered to you, it is a good idea to wait a day or two before reporting a lost package. The following are the most common reasons why tracking information may be missing or inaccurate:



    • The package may have reached a regional hub. In some cases, such as when there is a very high shipping volume, the first scan of a package may not take place until it arrives at a regional hub near its destination. When this happens, you may not have access to the tracking information until very close to the delivery date. 
    • Monitoring is not available. Some types of shipments, such as Standard International, are untraceable and you will not see the tracking information before delivery.
    • Monitoring of delays. Logistical delays occur occasionally in updating the monitoring database. This will delay the availability of the tracking information.
    • Seller did not provide tracking information. Items sold through Amazon Marketplace may sometimes not have tracking information because Marketplace sellers may not provide Amazon with tracking information.

    Third party app to track an Amazon package

    While you may rely on Amazon's order tracking tools to stay informed on delivery details, you may want to consider using a third-party app. The advantage of third-party apps is that they can aggregate tracking details for all major delivery services in the same interface, so you can see the status of all your inbound (and outbound) packages at a glance without changing app. Here are the most common third-party package tracking apps:

    • Parcel It is available for both iOS and Android and can track packages from 300 domestic and international delivery services, including Amazon Logistics. The app is free, but some features (including tracking more than three packages at a time) require a $ 3 per year subscription.  
    • Deliveries is available for iOS and Android and supports dozens of delivery services from all major US domestic carriers, including Apple and Amazon Logistics. One of the app's coolest features is its ability to automatically add estimated delivery dates to your calendar. The app is free but full access to all app features requires a subscription, currently $ 5 per year. 
    • ParcelTrack is available for iOS and Android and supports around 60 delivery services. The app is free, but to unlock all the tracking features in the app, you need to subscribe for $ 3 per year. In addition to standard tracking, it offers “delivery forecasts” which predict delivery times based on information provided by carriers.
