3. My order is showing completed and showing Delivered on the post/courier website, But the recipient confirmed they did not receive it yet. 

In most of the cases, the following are possibilities:

  • Parcel received by family members, neighbors or building manager. 
  • The parcel is in the recipient mailbox. (we advise to recheck receiver house/unit mailbox)
  • The parcel was left in a safe place by the post/courier man at the receiver property because no one was at the address during the day (Most of them working 9 am to 5 pm).
  • The parcel may be at the back of the house (If the front door is not safe to leave the package).
  • If the location is not safe to leave the parcel, It will be waiting for collection at the nearest post office. (Refer: FAQ4).

What is the next step for customers:

  • Advice the receiver to double-check with the above possibilities.
  • Share tracking details with your receiver to check, follow and contact the post or courier company.
  • Also, double-check the receiver address (Maybe the address is incorrect).

If still issue not resolves, feel free to contact us at info@rakhi.com.au or WhatsApp us on +61424606935

4. Why is my parcel tracking showing Awaiting for Collection. What does that mean?

If tracking status Awaiting collection means that shipping provider could not be able to deliver the parcel at addressed with following reasons:

  • No one was at the location to collect the package.
  • The delivery person was not able to access the premises (Security door lock etc.)
  • It was unsafe to leave the parcel at the premises or in the mailbox.
  • Unable to find the receiver at the address. 

In most cases, our shipping partners let the customer know by:

  • A notification (pre-formatted) card is left in your mailbox or sliding under your door.
  • Email notification sent to a provided email ID, About the status of the delivery.
  • Tracking will show which post office or collection point recipient can collect your parcel.
