Thread: South African Post Office Track and Trace - Never works

  1. #1

    Default South African Post Office Track and Trace - Never works

    Whenever I need to trace a parcel, the track and trace page for the post office never works.

    How difficult is it to get this simple thing working properly?

    Anybody else have the same problems? If any of you guys work there, please, sort this out.

    I never use the individual sites' tracking pages. I go to ParcelTrack

    Doesnt make a difference as parceltrack site needs to call the SAPO website, so net result is the same unfortunately

    the best way to do it is to go into a PO branch and have them call it up on their computers.

    Just tried it again, not working. Thought it might be my connection at work, connected my data card, tried again, also not working

    You can enter the SAPO tracking number into the SpeedServices box, if you having problems with SAPO...

    The Post Office always has problems with their websites, every few days it goes offline...

    Thanks for the Parcel Track link. Sapo website never works or is extremely slow most of the time.

    Default Post office track and trace

    The entire post office website doesnt work!

    I dont know who wrote this thing but my kid could do a lot better!
    It's so slow - worse than a tortise- doesnt down load properly, there are bits missing and they NEVER reply to ANYTHING. You can have as many links as you like to their trace and trace but it that doesnt work, then you are sunk.

    You would think by now the powers that be in the post office would realise that there is a problem and do something but obviously sitting on one's posterior and contemplating the navel is a much better option.
