How to track your WooCommerce Parcel
In WooCommerce, the parcel tracking number can be found within the order details after you've shipped an order. After logging into your WordPress dashboard, navigate to "WooCommerce", then click on "Orders". Select the order you're interested in. Once the order has been shipped and a tracking number has been provided by the shipping carrier, it should be entered into the Order Notes or in the Shipment Tracking field, depending on your settings and plugins.

WooCommerce Shipment Tracking Steps
WooCommerce shipment tracking usually involves several stages, from the moment an order is placed to its ultimate delivery. Here are the common steps:
Order Confirmation: When a customer places an order on a WooCommerce site, they receive an order confirmation. This confirms that the seller has received their order.
Preparation for Dispatch: The seller then prepares the item for shipping, packaging it securely and attaching the necessary shipping labels, including the tracking number.
Item Dispatched: The seller gives the parcel to the shipping carrier, and the tracking system updates to show that the item has been dispatched.
In Transit: This stage includes all the steps the parcel takes while it's on its way to the customer. This can include departing the original shipping facility, arriving at and leaving sorting facilities, being loaded onto delivery vehicles, etc. The tracking system updates at each step, offering real-time ecommerce tracking for WooCommerce orders.
Out for Delivery: This update is made when the parcel is on the delivery vehicle and expected to be delivered that day.
Delivered: This is the final stage, where the parcel is successfully delivered to the customer's specified address. The tracking status will change to 'delivered', marking the completion of the delivery process.
Failed/Attempted Delivery: If the carrier tries to deliver the parcel but can't for any reason, the tracking status might show "attempted delivery" or "delivery failed." The parcel could be held at a local delivery center or post office, and a re-delivery might be arranged.
