Returns tracking details for the given parcel, including when different events happened to it.

This endpoint doesn't contain precise personal location information, but can contain the city where events happen and some names (e.g. 'Parcel was signed for by JIMMY'). To get the public tracking URL that can be shared with the receiver, see the tracking_url key in the response from the create or view an order endpoints.

Note: The Sendle API does not currently expose webhooks, and this endpoint is the only way to retrieve tracking information. For updates, keep an eye on our Changelog!


We recommend getting new tracking information for each parcel once per hour.

You should limit your requests to this endpoint to 10 per second per unique IP.
