How TBA and Doordash tracking are changing the dropshipping business

Updated: Mar 23, 2022

Amazon and Walmart are using different shipping sources that make it difficult for dropshippers to track and confirm orders

Changing the way dropshipping businesses operate

The dropshipping business has been shaken up again by the recent changes in how packages are being delivered by two online retail giants. If you’re an e-commerce seller, or even just a frequent shopper, you’ve probably noticed that Amazon and Walmart are now using some different types of shipping services to get their packages into the hands of their customers quicker.

Amazon has been using their own fulfillment services to pick and pack orders for a long time, but now they're also using their own drivers to deliver them. This means they can offer two-day delivery on many items. When that happens, the shipping information provided by Amazon includes "TBA" in the tracking number. These tracking numbers can be searched on and a handful of other websites.
