How to Track All Your Orders and Shipments Online Using One App

By | December 27, 2021

If you tend to do most of your online shopping from Amazon, tracking your shipments is such an easy task you can even use your Echo to find out the location of your package.

But if you find yourself ordering from a bunch of online retailers, you can easily lose track of various packages en route to you unless you use an app to track everything in one place.

For iOS Users: Arrive

To use Arrive, you must be signed in with a Google account (and cookies must be enabled in Safari). This app does not support account creation in any other way.

When you first set up your account, you’ll be asked to turn on notifications, which is definitely a useful feature so you know when your package arrives.

And that’s him. Arrive will automatically sync tracking information from every email in your inbox. If you use multiple email addresses when placing an online order, you can add more than one account, as long as it’s a Google account of course.

When you first sync your account, if you have emails in your inbox for items that have already been shipped, Arrive will pull them into the app but you can mark them as sent.

If there are additional orders that you want to track that won’t go to your Gmail account, you can manually add shipments using the tracking number.

Arrive can sync all your online purchases from major online retailers like Amazon, Wish, eBay, and Walmart, and supports over 400 carriers including Amazon, UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL, and Canada Post.

For Android Users: ParcelTrack

ParcelTrack does something a little different. When you first sign up for a free account, it will provide you with an address that is specific to your personal ParcelTrack inbox.

When you receive an email with your shipment info, you can forward this email to your ParcelTrack inbox and the app will parse the information and add it to your app.

You can also enable push notifications for successful or attempted deliveries. If you want transit notifications, you must upgrade to a premium account.

If your Android phone supports this feature, tapping the tracking number in your email can also automatically open ParcelTrack and fill in most of the relevant information for you.

Using this app can raise some serious privacy questions. Even with ParcelTrack, while you may not share access to your inbox, you are still sharing information about your buying habits.

Arrive clearly states that it collects the tracking number, carrier name, order number, product details (name, price, photo) and a reference to the email containing the shipment. The company says it does not sell personal information and only provides limited, edited information to third parties as provided by their cloud storage.

ParcelTrack’s privacy policy is comprehensive but a little more difficult to read, but according to the policy, which is based on German data protection laws, your data is anonymized.

When using any of these apps, be sure to check out their FAQ or privacy policy to have a clear understanding of how your data may be used.

If you prefer to track this information from your desktop, there are plenty of package tracking websites worth checking out
