    If you want more specific details, go to the shipping provider's website (the "Details" section here may provide you with a hyperlink to there that you can click) and enter your tracking number there.

Note that it may sometimes take up to 3 days for a courier to change your tracking information, and that your order's tracking number may change.  If, after 3 days, you cannot get any tracking information for your order, or you have entered your order's tracking number on the courier's website and cannot match it with your order, get in touch with the seller.  They may be able to figure out where your order is.
