It’s important to note that tracking is not available if you choose the lowest price delivery method. It’s easy to see when you order: Choose UK Tracked for, well, a tracked delivery, and UK Standard for an untracked delivery.

From here, things are quite straightforward. You can view the status of your delivery on the courier’s website and are always up to date.

How does tracking work?

When Snapfish arranges transport with the courier, this order generates an ID which is printed onto the parcel containing your photo book.

At every step of the way, the courier scans this ID. These steps will be “picked up from Snapfish”, “en route to sorting station” and so on. Depending on the courier, it can be that the driver has an ID, too.

This is used to associate your parcel to his or her truck. As they are driving it, their ID may be transmitted to the Internet (put very simply) and thus it can be seen where they are.

This sort of detailed tracking has become more and more popular. Clicking on the tracking link opens a map and you can see exactly where they are o the map and you are able to really look forward to them ringing your bell.

Of course, sometimes tracking is more or less just a list of stops detailing where your parcel was and where it is currently headed. You’ll know the day but not the exact time of the delivery.
