How to find Taobao tracking number
Taobao package tracking number is usually provided by Taobao itself after the order is confirmed and the parcel is sent off. Usually, to find it, all you need to do is check either the store's orders page, or the order confirmation email.
Where is the Taobao tracking number, if neither of the above have it? Bear in mind that certain items require you to pay extra to provide detailed package tracking, or any kind of tracking at all, which might be why your package isn't present in most postal databases out there. If you're not sure, or if you're certain there is tracking attached to your item, make sure you check out Taobao 's help pages or, if you still have no luck finding it, call Taobao 's customer support.
