For those who shop in China on a regular basis, tracking numbers are not a mystery to us.
However, people who enter this world, often have many questions to follow the orders.
Most sellers, non-electronic items, usually send them by chinapost, is the most used way of shipping by sellers and now we are going to show you how to interpret the follow up and from where to follow it, it should be said that from the chinese webs we will know all the movements that makes our request.
Once we buy and give us a tracking number, it is normal for the tracking website to appear late in 3 to 10 days.
If in some case it takes longer to appear, the seller is probably out of stock and it takes a little longer to appear or the article is of a very small value and has given a track when it has been sent by ordinary mail.
The web for order tracking is http://www.17track.net/index_en.shtml. In this website, by entering the tracking number and pressing “details” will show you all the details about the status of your order.
As you can see, these are the normal states of a shipment:
Collection: the shipping has been generated and are waiting to receive the package at china post office.
Accepted: The package has been delivered to the post office.
Opening: This state does not mean that they have opened it, but they have left the post office to go to the airport, it does not always go directly, so this state may appear several times.
Departure from outward office of exchange: This state indicates that it is in the destination change office, ie the pre-airport office.
Dispatch from the point of origin international office: indicates the same as the previous one.
NULL, CAN CAN / NULL, PVG PVG: This state indicates the acronym of the airport where the package is waiting for flight to reach Spain being the Canton-Baiyun in Guangzhou and the Pudong in Shanghai respectively does not always appear this state, So if it does not appear do not worry.
Arrival to inward office of exchage: The package has arrived at the destination airport.
Delivery to the destination international office: same as the previous one.
Arrival at delivery office: The package is being transferred to the post office in your city.

In the delivery process: The shipment is in distribution and should get you home.
The shipments by chinapost usually differ from the rest because they all end with “CN” being able to start, for “RA”, “RB”, “RC”, “RD”, “RI” and even “RC” so all this type Of shipments are by chinapost.
There are other shipping types like HKpost (Hong Kong) which unlike these end up with “HK”
When the vendors send an electronic article, that is, something that contains batteries, make the shipments by other methods since chinapost and HKpost (HOng Kong) does not allow the shipment of batteries, in this case usually use Singaporepost, Sweedenpost, deustchepost, nederlandpost or some similar.
