Default Add USPS Tracking #

Is there a safe way to add tracking numbers to an order without logging into the account?

The reason I ask is because there are some days where I can't print labels from eBay due to time constraints but I can hand write the label and buy postage at USPS.

I don't have those websites setup with the eBay accounts I need to add tracking. Once I have the websites linked to each respective eBay account, in the future, can I just login to pirateship/shipstation and add tracking number which I received from purchasing postage from USPS?

You purchase postage and print your labels through those 3rd party sites. They automatically send the tracking. You dont have to log into anything other than the site, click a few buttons and print.

HOW DOES the third party site know where to send the tracking number if he is not coming via Ebay or entering the ebay item listing number?

The 3rd party software connects to the eBay API and pulls/posts orders directly.

what I mean is if I just type in its website,enter the shipping and return address with no mention of what it is for,how does it know it is an Ebay order or Etsy order?
Just like using Paypal shipnow,it does not know nor does it care why you are printing a shipping label

It wouldn't know where the order is from if you enter the address manually. That's not what yankee was talking about doing.

With pirateship, shipstation, stamps.com, endicia, and any other electronic USPS postage provider, you are able to link your eBay account to the postage software. Within your software you tell it you want to link an eBay store. The software takes you to eBay, you login, and establish a link between the postage software and your account. After that you're able to import all of your orders and postback tracking in one click.

but he is talking about writing the shipping label by hand and then take it to the post office to buy postage and come back with a tracking number.
if I understand his question,he wants to enter the tracking number to his order without logging into his ebay account.
will the third party site allow him to enter tracking number when he is not using them to print shipping label?

Pirate ship was going really smooth for me at first but now my payment method keeps getting rejected by them.

Anyone else having issues with pirate ship?

What you just said was the question I was asking.

Through trial and logical thinking Iíve found out that you canít add your own tracking obtained from Usps office eBay order.

he does not want to log into his Ebay or Paypal account,so he can only wish buyer does not complain,but it will hurt his Ebay standing.
save the tracking number in case buyer files item not received.

That's very unprofessional and will ruin your account metrics. When you ship an order you should upload the tracking number to keep your account in good standing.

some sellers do not ship with tracking with low price items like post cards,stamps,coins,doll shoes.threads,patterns etc.
ALL They do is mark the order as shipped.
I have received dvd placed in a foldout envelope with first class postage stamp,it arrived fine .
some sellers do not have printers to print shipping label,or just to save money and take a chance.

But if you're shipping with tracking you should take the time to upload that tracking number to eBay.
