How do I add tracking information or mark an order as processed?

If you used a shipping company that offers online tracking, you can add tracking information to the payment details on your PayPal account. We recommend you add online tracking to confirm delivery, as it's one of the requirements to be eligible for Seller Protection. For digital or intangible items (ebooks, services, etc.), change the status to 'processed'.

To add your tracking information or change the order status:

  1. Go to Activity.
  2. Click the buyer’s payment.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page, then click Add Tracking Info. If you sold an intangible item or a service and do not have a tracking number, please select Mark as Processed.
    • NOTE: If you don't see 'Add Tracking Info', click the See Details in Classic Site link.
  4. Fill in the information, and then click Save.

After you click Save, the buyer receives an email to let them know that you entered the shipment tracking information for this transaction (if applicable). The email includes the tracking number, order status, and shipping company.

Your funds will be released 1 day after we can confirm your item was delivered.
