After purchasing an item on eBay, you may be anxious to receive your item and would naturally like to know when you can expect it. eBay allows sellers to purchase shipping labels online, with the cost coming directly out of the funds received for the sale. If the seller has utilised this service to ship your item, you can access the tracking information directly from the "My eBay" page. Sellers also have the ability to enter tracking information manually if they use another service to print shipping labels.

Tips and warnings
- eBay sellers are not required to print their shipping labels through eBay or PayPal, nor are they required to add tracking numbers manually if they ship with outside services. As a result, some of your eBay purchases may not display tracking information, even if they have been shipped. Some sellers e-mail tracking numbers to buyers. Check the email address associated with your eBay account to see if the seller has sent you an update. If you have received no communication from the seller, contact the seller for tracking information for your purchase.
