ColiPoste and China EMS in Delivery Status

ColiPoste (La Poste) and China EMS have been two of the most popular requests for Delivery Status. We would love to add them, but unfortunately it is not possible. Both tracking sites are designed in a way that does not allow it. ColiPoste displays the tracking results as images, so there’s no way for Delivery Status to read the text. China EMS uses a CAPTCHA, or verification code, so the only way to get the status is to visit the site yourself and enter the code.

It won’t be as nice, but you can keep track of shipments from these services using the “Other” option in Delivery Status. With ColiPoste you can even enter a direct link to your tracking info in the “Web Site” field. Just enter and replace the X’s with your actual tracking number. Once the delivery is saved, you can click the delivery (Mac) or tap the delivery, then tap “View details online” (iPhone). You’ll see the latest status there.

If this ever changes and it becomes possible to add these services, we probably will!

I think the coliposte limitation has gone, since an iphone app named “suivissimo” keeps track of our shipments from coliposte…

Perhaps in the next release of Delivery status will we have th pleasure to track our coliposte shipments natively :-)

How about China Post Registered Mail, also known as China Post Airmail? You have HongKong Post but that does not work for China Post Airmail deliveries.
