00:00:00 00:00:04 in this video we're going to cover how
00:00:01 00:00:06 to convert amazon tba tracking numbers
00:00:04 00:00:08 for your drop shipping business so that
00:00:06 00:00:09 you can obviously input them in wherever
00:00:08 00:00:11 the platform that you're drop shipping
00:00:09 00:00:12 on now i personally use this for
00:00:11 00:00:15 facebook marketplace
00:00:12 00:00:17 facebook shops even amazon drop shipping
00:00:15 00:00:20 and a number of other places including
00:00:17 00:00:22 mercari tradesy grail kittizin you name
00:00:20 00:00:24 it you can also use this for ebay as
00:00:22 00:00:26 well although i personally don't use
00:00:24 00:00:27 this on ebay it was also brought to my
00:00:26 00:00:29 attention because i thought that like
00:00:27 00:00:31 everybody kind of knew how to do this
00:00:29 00:00:33 already but i never created a video on
00:00:31 00:00:35 it and i keep getting this question in
00:00:33 00:00:36 comments and through emails and in the
00:00:35 00:00:38 facebook group as well so i wanted to
00:00:36 00:00:40 just make a one-stop shop video for
00:00:38 00:00:42 everybody to reference so i can just
00:00:40 00:00:44 link this video as a video in-depth
00:00:42 00:00:46 answer for anybody that might have this
00:00:44 00:00:48 question in the future now primarily
00:00:46 00:00:50 where people face this issue is on
00:00:48 00:00:52 facebook marketplace but if you're
00:00:50 00:00:54 dealing with another you know platform
00:00:52 00:00:56 specifically this same method applies to
00:00:54 00:00:57 this to that platform
00:00:56 00:00:58 it's just you know you're going to input
00:00:57 00:01:00 the tracking number on a different
00:00:58 00:01:02 platform not facebook marketplace so if
00:01:00 00:01:04 you look on the screen right now this is
00:01:02 00:01:05 an item i drop shipped recently and one
00:01:04 00:01:08 of the issues that you'll get is this
00:01:05 00:01:09 amazon tba tracking number so if for
00:01:08 00:01:10 example you're drop shipping that on
00:01:09 00:01:12 facebook marketplace
00:01:10 00:01:14 how do you go about inputting that in
00:01:12 00:01:15 facebook marketplace you can't because
00:01:14 00:01:19 facebook marketplace only gives you the
00:01:15 00:01:21 option to input ups fedex or uh the post
00:01:19 00:01:23 office so what you then need to do is
00:01:21 00:01:24 you need to convert this amazon tracking
00:01:23 00:01:27 number into a tracking number that's
00:01:24 00:01:30 going to that same exact city and state
00:01:27 00:01:31 for that relative date so for example
00:01:30 00:01:33 this one was already delivered but just
00:01:31 00:01:35 use your imagination here let's say
00:01:33 00:01:37 hypothetikally because it is june 3rd
00:01:35 00:01:39 this was delivered yesterday let's say
00:01:37 00:01:42 hypothetikally this is estimated to be
00:01:39 00:01:44 delivered on june 5th for example right
00:01:42 00:01:46 and it's going to philadelphia pa so
00:01:44 00:01:48 what i would then do is instead of you
00:01:46 00:01:49 know inputting the tba tracking number
00:01:48 00:01:50 which i can't even do on facebook
00:01:49 00:01:52 marketplace and even if you're on
00:01:50 00:01:54 facebook shops you still don't want to
00:01:52 00:01:55 input the amazon tracking number in
00:01:54 00:01:57 facebook shops because it's going to
00:01:55 00:01:59 hurt your metrics overall if you have a
00:01:57 00:02:01 specific question on how and why it will
00:01:59 00:02:02 hurt your metrics on facebook shops even
00:02:01 00:02:05 though they let you input an amazon
00:02:02 00:02:06 tracking number i did an entire video on
00:02:05 00:02:08 that i'll try to link it at the bottom
00:02:06 00:02:09 of the description if you want to check
00:02:08 00:02:11 it out after this video okay so don't
00:02:09 00:02:14 input them in shops either even though
00:02:11 00:02:15 it gives you the opportunity to actually
00:02:14 00:02:18 do so so if this was going to
00:02:15 00:02:19 philadelphia pa on june 5th
00:02:18 00:02:21 i can't input this in the facebook
00:02:19 00:02:23 marketplace what i then do is i go to
00:02:21 00:02:25 track taco right here and i'll actually
00:02:23 00:02:27 link this in the description as well so
00:02:25 00:02:28 you go to track taco you buy tracking
00:02:27 00:02:30 numbers and then what you can do is you
00:02:28 00:02:32 can input philadelphia pa and you can
00:02:30 00:02:34 see just how many of these i've used
00:02:32 00:02:36 like i've used so many of them um i
00:02:34 00:02:38 think i still have 66 left but if you
00:02:36 00:02:40 buy a bunch of credits at once um it can
00:02:38 00:02:42 be really really cheap i'm not sure the
00:02:40 00:02:45 specific number on it it can be as
00:02:42 00:02:47 expensive i believe as like 75 cents all
00:02:45 00:02:49 the way down to i want to say like 25 to
00:02:47 00:02:51 30 cents a tracking number if you buy
00:02:49 00:02:52 them in bulk i usually just buy 500 at a
00:02:51 00:02:55 time so i don't really have to worry
00:02:52 00:02:57 about kind of constantly renewing them
00:02:55 00:02:59 uh so philadelphia pa if this is going
00:02:57 00:03:01 to philadelphia pa on the 5th what i
00:02:59 00:03:03 would then do is i'd want to mark it a
00:03:01 00:03:05 day later just in case it was a little
00:03:03 00:03:07 slow and also you don't want to mark it
00:03:05 00:03:09 on the same day because for whatever
00:03:07 00:03:10 reason their that tracking number shows
00:03:09 00:03:12 delivered in the morning but their
00:03:10 00:03:14 tracking number is getting delivered the
00:03:12 00:03:15 same day but it gets delivered later you
00:03:14 00:03:17 don't want to run into an issue where
00:03:15 00:03:19 the customer is questioning it being
00:03:17 00:03:21 like hey my thing showed up as delivered
00:03:19 00:03:23 but it's not here yet so always go at
00:03:21 00:03:25 least a day later preferably even two
00:03:23 00:03:26 the only issue that you're gonna face
00:03:25 00:03:28 there is you're gonna get your money a
00:03:26 00:03:29 day or two later when the tracking
00:03:28 00:03:31 number's actually delivered uh instead
00:03:29 00:03:33 of the actual package but if they
00:03:31 00:03:35 receive their package first and the
00:03:33 00:03:36 tracking number shows a day later that
00:03:35 00:03:38 it's delivered or two they're not even
00:03:36 00:03:39 going to pay attention to it number one
00:03:38 00:03:40 most people won't even realize and even
00:03:39 00:03:42 if they do they're still going to be
00:03:40 00:03:44 happy because they got their package
00:03:42 00:03:45 faster than they expected to so if this
00:03:44 00:03:48 was coming on the fifth to philadelphia
00:03:45 00:03:50 epa i input philadelphia pa here i put
00:03:48 00:03:52 the six because it's a day later so i'll
00:03:50 00:03:53 go sixth the seventh and then i'll wait
00:03:52 00:03:55 for it to pop up with the estimated
00:03:53 00:03:58 available tracking numbers it found four
00:03:55 00:04:00 thousand between fedex and ups together
00:03:58 00:04:02 i click get tracking number i wait for
00:04:00 00:04:05 it to generate that tracking number to
00:04:02 00:04:06 philadelphia pa on if i we click the ups
00:04:05 00:04:08 tracking number right here it's going to
00:04:06 00:04:10 show me when it's delivered and it
00:04:08 00:04:12 should say the sixth or the seventh this
00:04:10 00:04:13 is coming on the seventh so perfect then
00:04:12 00:04:16 i would copy this tracking number i
00:04:13 00:04:18 would input it into facebook marketplace
00:04:16 00:04:20 on that order and now i have a tracking
00:04:18 00:04:23 number that's going to that city that
00:04:20 00:04:24 state estimated slightly later than the
00:04:23 00:04:27 actual item is getting there the
00:04:24 00:04:29 customer's happy i'm happy because i i
00:04:27 00:04:30 don't have to run into an issue where i
00:04:29 00:04:32 can't input that tracking number and i
00:04:30 00:04:34 get the order cancelled and obviously
00:04:32 00:04:35 the platform's happy because it looks
00:04:34 00:04:37 like you're inputting tracking numbers
00:04:35 00:04:39 on time and you don't run into any
00:04:37 00:04:41 issues okay so that's the first way to
00:04:39 00:04:44 do it is you want to convert amazon tba
00:04:41 00:04:46 tracking numbers into track taco
00:04:44 00:04:49 tracking numbers which then generate you
00:04:46 00:04:50 a ups or a fedex tracking number to that
00:04:49 00:04:52 city and state on that estimated
00:04:50 00:04:54 delivery date now the second way that i
00:04:52 00:04:56 use this is when i'm
00:04:54 00:04:57 marking orders fake ship so
00:04:56 00:04:59 this is something that i've toked about
00:04:57 00:05:01 in a previous video i don't keep track
00:04:59 00:05:02 of stok and i don't change my prices
00:05:01 00:05:04 and so two times that i'll mark an order
00:05:02 00:05:06 fake shipped i often do this on amazon
00:05:04 00:05:09 as well even though i use the software
00:05:06 00:05:11 to track and reprice my items on amazon
00:05:09 00:05:13 i don't do that for facebook marketplace
00:05:11 00:05:14 for facebook shop but for facebook
00:05:13 00:05:16 marketplace specifically and for amazon
00:05:14 00:05:18 and really any platform if for example
00:05:16 00:05:20 you run into an issue where somebody
00:05:18 00:05:22 orders an item and it's out of stok on
00:05:20 00:05:24 your suppliers website and you can't
00:05:22 00:05:26 find that item on any other website for
00:05:24 00:05:29 whatever reason and you need to
00:05:26 00:05:31 obviously market shipped or cancel it
00:05:29 00:05:32 if you want to protect your cancellation
00:05:31 00:05:34 rate you don't want to uh you know
00:05:32 00:05:36 cancel a bunch of orders one of the ways
00:05:34 00:05:38 that you can do it is market fake ship
00:05:36 00:05:39 so for example let's say this customer
00:05:38 00:05:42 where you can't find the item has an
00:05:39 00:05:44 address in columbus ohio well then you'd
00:05:42 00:05:47 come to track taco you generate an at
00:05:44 00:05:48 you generate an address to columbus
00:05:47 00:05:49 ohio
00:05:48 00:05:50 on whatever date it doesn't really
00:05:49 00:05:52 matter because you're not actually
00:05:50 00:05:54 ordering this product it's not actually
00:05:52 00:05:55 coming and so what would happen is you
00:05:54 00:05:58 generate a tracking number to columbus
00:05:55 00:05:59 ohio you input that fake tracking number
00:05:58 00:06:01 which obviously doesn't have a
00:05:59 00:06:03 corresponding product with it because
00:06:01 00:06:05 you didn't actually order that product
00:06:03 00:06:06 and then the customer is going to see
00:06:05 00:06:08 that the item was delivered and they're
00:06:06 00:06:09 going to obviously message you and then
00:06:08 00:06:11 you can go about refunding them and
00:06:09 00:06:12 apologizing to them so i'll go ahead and
00:06:11 00:06:14 i'll refund them when they reach out
00:06:12 00:06:15 typically and i'll say something along
00:06:14 00:06:18 the lines as well as give them the
00:06:15 00:06:19 screenshot of the refunded order as
00:06:18 00:06:20 somehow this got delivered to the wrong
00:06:19 00:06:22 address i'm currently on the phone with
00:06:20 00:06:24 fedex or ups trying to figure out
00:06:22 00:06:26 exactly what happened but i've gone
00:06:24 00:06:28 ahead and issued you a full refund on
00:06:26 00:06:29 your order sorry for the inconvenience
00:06:28 00:06:31 okay and so basically what you're doing
00:06:29 00:06:33 is you're saying like fedex or ups lost
00:06:31 00:06:35 the package you're trying to follow it
00:06:33 00:06:37 up but you're taking ownership of it and
00:06:35 00:06:38 you're issuing them a full refund very
00:06:37 00:06:40 rarely do i run into somebody that has a
00:06:38 00:06:42 major issue with this most people just
00:06:40 00:06:44 say okay thanks can i reorder and then
00:06:42 00:06:45 you can either say at that point like
00:06:44 00:06:47 hey you don't have any more you'll let
00:06:45 00:06:49 them know when you get more in stok or
00:06:47 00:06:51 yes you can reorder if for whatever
00:06:49 00:06:52 reason it's been like a week since you
00:06:51 00:06:54 know you tried to order it last time and
00:06:52 00:06:55 the tracking number the fake tracking
00:06:54 00:06:57 number you know was mark delivered and
00:06:55 00:06:58 they're reaching out to you and then by
00:06:57 00:07:00 that time it might be back in stok and
00:06:58 00:07:01 then you can go ahead with their where
00:07:00 00:07:03 their order and send them another one
00:07:01 00:07:04 right or if it even comes back in stok
00:07:03 00:07:06 then you can just simply say to them
00:07:04 00:07:08 like instead of saying refund them you
00:07:06 00:07:10 can just simply simply say like hey this
00:07:08 00:07:12 got delivered to the wrong address i'm
00:07:10 00:07:13 currently on the phone with ups or fedex
00:07:12 00:07:15 trying to figure out exactly what
00:07:13 00:07:16 happened but i'm going ahead and
00:07:15 00:07:18 expediting you another one just it's
00:07:16 00:07:20 kind of like a fancy way of saying like
00:07:18 00:07:22 i'm express shipping it even though you
00:07:20 00:07:23 might not be and then when that happens
00:07:22 00:07:25 you can order them another one and then
00:07:23 00:07:27 send them and message them the new
00:07:25 00:07:29 tracking number so that's the second way
00:07:27 00:07:31 market fake shipped i also do this on
00:07:29 00:07:33 amazon quite frequently because on
00:07:31 00:07:36 amazon you have a lot less wiggle room
00:07:33 00:07:37 with your your uh cancellation rate also
00:07:36 00:07:38 with your valid tracking rates you need
00:07:37 00:07:40 to be careful but that's a completely
00:07:38 00:07:42 different video topic but that's
00:07:40 00:07:43 basically how you can approach it that
00:07:42 00:07:45 way now another reason that you might
00:07:43 00:07:48 want to use this is if like i said it's
00:07:45 00:07:50 out of stok or if for whatever reason
00:07:48 00:07:52 the price was raised significantly on
00:07:50 00:07:55 your suppliers website and now you're
00:07:52 00:07:57 losing a significant amount of money so
00:07:55 00:07:59 in my experience like if i'm losing five
00:07:57 00:08:01 to ten dollars here there like it's rare
00:07:59 00:08:02 what i'll do is i'll i'll send it out
00:08:01 00:08:05 anyway and then i'll just mark my price
00:08:02 00:08:07 up manually if i'm losing like 20 or
00:08:05 00:08:09 more often i won't even ship that i'll
00:08:07 00:08:10 just fake ship it i'll raise my price
00:08:09 00:08:12 and then worry about it with future
00:08:10 00:08:14 orders because i don't track stok and i
00:08:12 00:08:16 don't you know change my prices and i've
00:08:14 00:08:18 covered that in another video why in
00:08:16 00:08:19 depth so if you're curious on that check
00:08:18 00:08:21 the video out up in the right hand
00:08:19 00:08:23 corner right now that will cover why i
00:08:21 00:08:25 don't recommend that you track your
00:08:23 00:08:28 stok or change your prices because
00:08:25 00:08:30 honestly 99.99 of your items will never
00:08:28 00:08:31 get traction and they will never sell so
00:08:30 00:08:34 you're just wasting your time and
00:08:31 00:08:37 wasting your money tracking and changing
00:08:34 00:08:39 prices on you know 99.9 of your items
00:08:37 00:08:41 that will never really gain any traction
00:08:39 00:08:43 anyway so i really hope that this video
00:08:41 00:08:44 helped i wanted to outline this because
00:08:43 00:08:46 i keep getting this question and i know
00:08:44 00:08:47 clearly a lot of people have this
00:08:46 00:08:49 question and they need the answer so
