What are “fake tracking” numbers?
Fake tracking numbers are defined as tracking numbers that are intentionally inaccurate. Wish customers and the Wish platform are misled to believe these orders to be delivered or shipped when they are not.
What are some examples of fake tracking？
- Not shipping an order to the customer, and fulfilling an order with an illegitimate tracking number
- Shipping an empty package to the customer instead of their order, and fulfilling the order with a legitimate tracking number
- Shipping an order to a customer in Sweden, and fulfilling the order with invalid or inaccurate shipping carrier and/or tracking number
What if I shipped the order correctly to the customer, but mistakenly fulfilled the order with an incorrect tracking number? Will that be considered to be “fake tracking”?
No, this will not be considered to be “fake tracking.” However, you should use the Modify Tracking tool (in Orders > History page for individual orders) to correct the tracking number for the order as soon as possible.
What is the “fake tracking” fine policy?
Effective for orders that are marked “Shipped” or have their tracking information modified on June 20 00:00 PST or later:
If an order is fulfilled using a fake tracking number, the merchant will be fined the order value and $100. Their merchant account will also be at risk of suspension.
I fulfilled an order to Sweden, and I got a “Fake Tracking” fine for the order. Why?
Sweden orders that are not fulfilled properly with an accepted shipping carrier may be subject to Wish policies, penalties, and possible suspension. For example, if an order is fulfilled with invalid and/or inaccurate tracking information, the merchant may be responsible for the refund cost and/or the merchant may receive a fake tracking fine. We appreciate the attention and cooperation of merchants in providing the best customer service to our customers.
