Wish is an America-based e-commerce platform, founded in 2010 and headquartered in San Francisco. Wish's main gimmick is in its' name: it allows its' users to make wish lists of goods they want to buy, which the app then proceeds to match with the appropriate sellers. Like most other e-commerce platforms, Wish does not stock the goods in question, leaving the warehousing and shipping to the merchants themselves.
Packages are currently delivered on business days only.
Wish was formed in 2011 as a subsidiary of ContextLogic, a software company, founded and then owned by Piotr Szulczewski, a former Google engineer. He invited his college friend Sheng Zhang to co-found Wish. Going for a business approach that revolves around gifts and souvenirs, Wish took a small cut from every sale made, as well as from the pay-per-click Facebook ads featured within the app. Soon, a website version followed.
Despite multiple buyout offers from Alibaba and Amazon, Wish continues to be its' own entity to this day, with its' iOS and Android versions combined becoming the most downloaded e-commerce app in the States in 2017, and across the world in 2018.
Wish offers small and low-cost products, serving as an intermediary between the seller and the customer. Most of the items are delivered in an agreement between Wish, China Post and USPS, as Wish Post, with decreased shipping rates. At an average, the packages don't exceed 2kg in weight and are sent by the seller themselves.
The store also offers Wish Express, a program for expedited item delivery, Blitz Buy, a roulette wheel that offers discounts on certain items, and Wish Outlet, a substore which offers items of well-known brands at lower prices.

What is Wish tracking number
Wish order tracking number is a unique ID of the package, used both by recepients and postal workers alike for ease of identification. Those depend on the courier handling it and the country it's arriving from, as they come in different formats, with S10 being the most internationally accepted one, starting with the recepient's country code, followed by eight unique numbers, one check digit and the sender's country code.
Domestic postal services and international carriers, as well as their sister companies, each have their own tracking number formats. Some of the more popular carriers use the following:
- USPS: 20 digits; or 10 digits for Global Express Guaranteed(R);
- UPS: United Parcel Service: 18 symbols, starting with 1Z and ending with a check digit;
- DHL Express: 10 digits; otherwise, 000, JJD00, JJD01, JVGL or similar, followed by 8 digits;

- China Post/4PX Express: same as the 9-digit format, but starting with the letters AQ.
How to find Wish tracking number
Wish package tracking number is usually provided by Wish 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 Wish 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 Wish 's help pages or, if you still have no luck finding it, call Wish 's customer support.
Wish tracking number format
The format of an international Wish tracking number varies, usually it consists of 11 digits. Sometimes, it can start with one or two letters (UD or UG for packages with partial tracking, and R or L for packages with full, point-by-point tracking), followed by 11 digits and a CN at the end.
