Frequently asked questions

What is a tracking webhook?

A webhook, which is also called a web call-back or HTTP push API, is a way for an app to provide other applications with real-time information. A webhook delivers data to other applications as it happens, meaning you get data immediately. Unlike typical APIs where you would need to call for data very frequently in order to get it real-time. This makes webhooks much more efficient for both providers and consumers.

A tracking webhook uses all the useful features of a webhook HTTP push API and utilizes those to universally track packages and parcels. The global tracking webhook developed by Ship24 has been specifically developed with businesses in mind who need to track their parcels worldwide. Tracking parcels and packages using the tracking webhook makes it simple for businesses who need the latest information on their parcel, regardless of its location. The tracking webhook feature not only tracks location in real-time, but it also updates the status of each package it follows as soon as that tracking information becomes available.

API and webhooks are different. An API can be used from a server to communicate with another application. Whereas webhooks are automated calls from an application to a server. The calls are only triggered when an update or event occurs on another application. This is important to note when it comes to tracking webhooks. They offer a different kind of service to tracking API. Both services are able to track parcels worldwide, with the choice between either the tracking API or tracking webhook depending on the needs of the business. The core tracking capability remains the same, but the different choices offer businesses a chance to tailor their package tracking most in line with their own strategy.

How can I track my shipment using the Ship24 webhook?

Unlike other tracking services, Ship24 can auto-detect the couriers handling your package based on the tracking number. This means that the customer doesn't have to manually select which courier is used, resulting in the simplest user integration. Of course, it's still possible to force the selection of a courier if really needed.

Although the logistic world moves fast, our team is consistently ahead of the curve, adding new couriers and new sources to make sure we cover all your tracking needs. Equally, our core tracking system and data sources are constantly monitored to ensure you get the best possible tracking information, resulting in quality tracking solutions to meet your needs.

Ship24 also develops as the sector does, recognizing and recording new number patterns using machine learning algorithms to stay on to date with any new tracking number and couriers patterns.

This means true end-to-end tracking and multi-tracking number capability with 759 couriers, with this number only set to grow.
Logistics is complex, so we make it easy. If a parcel changes courier or even tracking numbers, as often happens even if being handled by major couriers such as FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL or otherwise, Ship24 can still track the location and status of your parcel.
This makes Ship24 the only shipment tracking company on the market to offer true end-to-end tracking, because of our ability to handle multiple tracking numbers simultaneously.

The Ship24 webhook has been designed to be easily compatible with other systems, for the purpose of making integration smooth and timely. The process is also backed by a capable and efficient team that makes sure integration are painless.

How do I set up a Ship24 tracking webhook?

For those businesses which are interested in using a tracking webhook system, they simply need to create a Ship24 account and get their API keys/credentials from the Ship24 dashboard. Once this is finalized after reading the relevant documentation, they can connect their system directly to the Ship24 system.

The Ship24 dashboard can be used to configure and test the webhook and once all set up, the tracking webhook API will allow you to create a "tracker" on a tracking number. Once a tracker is created, Ship24 will follow this parcel for you and you can either receive a webhook notification, query our system to get tracking events, or both.

So, here is the tracking webhook set up process in 4 easy steps:

  1. Create a ship24 account and get their API keys/credentials from our dashboard
  2. Read the documentation and connect their system to ours
  3. Configure and test the webhook from our dashboard
  4. Create a tracker on your chosen parcel or package to begin universal tracking

Please note: Once a tracker is created, you will be able to receive webhook notifications and fetch the tracking of this tracking number. This endpoint is idempotent, once a tracker is created on a specific tracking number, any subsequent calls with the same tracking number will have no effect.

When do I need a tracking webhook?

It is clear that there is a choice to be made for when you need an API and when you need a webhook. A tracking API in layman's terms - allows you to pull data from a provider, whereas a tracking webhook allows the provider to push data on you. This difference could be key to whether you need the former or the latter for your business. Both are useful, and in some service sectors, webhooks are not even available! Fortunately, both tracking API and tracking webhooks are available to track parcel shipments with Ship24 so the choice is up to the business depending on their needs.

What is significant about a tracking webhook compared to a tracking API is that tracking webhooks send information from your provider about every event. An event would be a change in the status of your shipment, a change in location, or both. It will push information about every single update to their provider, which is a requirement for some businesses that will need that level of information regarding tracking.

The Ship24 tracking webhook is a one-way notification system that sends the latest updates as soon as they are generated worldwide. This globally active tracking notification system is among the best in the sector, which is why businesses are using it to get the latest tracking information globally on their packages or parcels.

The best advice for businesses is to understand their business needs and take the time to read the developer docs for their services to find the best way to get the data you and the company needs. If those documents are still being developed, then there is also plenty of information on the internet, in both blogs and articles, which could offer some better advice. However, all the information you need to get your business the best tracking webhook services can also be found right here, on Ship24! As a leading webhook tracking provider we have lots of content on both tracking APIs and tracking Webhooks which will allow you to make the best decision based on your business needs.

The tracking webhook takes parcel tracking to another level, not only providing universal coverage but instant updates as they happen, in real-time.

Why are tracking webhooks important for businesses?

Webhooks have proven hugely important when a business wants to link functions between different API services or create features that respond to actions. Developers in the past have most commonly used webhooks to create a customized notification system for events and this is exactly how the Ship24 tracking webhook works.

Tracking webhooks, this is when a business would like to trigger notifications for events related to tracking information changes, such as for location or parcel shipment status changes. It is specifically designed to provide and push notifications concerning updates in tracking information for the system it is connected with.

Parcels have a complex life cycle and can be handled by a number of different couriers under different tracking numbers. However, our system is designed from the ground up to handle these variables. We provide all the aggregated and corresponding events in a simple and organized way, with the idea being that we do all the hard work on our end, so you just get the quality-relevant data.

Data is the crux of Ship24, but we know our clients just want the data to be delivered in a comprehensive but simple way. Therefore, for each parcel we have a clear, uniform structure detailing the journey of your parcel so far, its current location and over 20 different status and sub status possibilities to keep our clients in the know.

By providing all of this information instantly, Ship24 enables the customer to make an informed decision depending on their parcel status, while improving delivery rates and overall logistical efficiency.

Furthermore, it allows our customers to bind specific actions and notifications on specific statuses. For instance, do you want to alert the receiver in case the parcel needs to have its customs import fee paid or be picked up in a nearby pick-up point? Ship24 has you covered. Need to let the receiver know that the parcel is out for delivery and will be delivered within a couple of hours? No problem!

Once integrated, our powerful, professional webhook services will be able to meet your business needs at every step of the way.

Will a webhook tracking tool mean my goods are delivered faster?

The responsibility for the timeframe of delivery is with the courier/s which are involved and will depend on the services which you have purchased with those carriers. If you opt to have an item delivered with an express type service, it is likely that your parcel will travel via air or road, as these are the fastest delivery methods. However, more standard and economic delivery options will likely be delivered by road, rail, or sea, with the latter being one of the slowest transportation methods. Regardless of which method of transport your parcel is being carried by, our international webhook tracking tool will still be able to follow your parcel along the entirety of its journey. The bonus with utilizing a tracking webhook is that although it won't make delivery faster, it will mean you have full visibility over the progress of the delivery, meaning you are best informed on the status, location and likely arrival date and time of your goods. That's why thousands of businesses are optimizing their tracking with our tracking webhook.
