A delivery notification is an email or other message notifying a recipient about the whereabouts of their order or delivery. This type of notification might include the delivery date, time, and location, as well as a tracking number.
Delivery notifications can be sent automatically by the shipping company or manually by the retailer. Some retailers include delivery notifications as part of their order confirmation message. Recipients can also set up delivery notifications to be sent to them when a package is delivered to their address.
Delivery notifications are a useful way to keep track of packages, especially if you are expecting a delivery but will not be available to receive it. They can also help you track down a lost or stolen package. If you get a notification that a package has been delivered to your address without your ordering it, there's a chance it's an attempt at fraud or identity theft. Be sure to notify the proper authorities about any such attempts.
