This article explains Sendle's 2-Day Delivery Guarantee in more detail, and answers all of your juiciest FAQs.
What is Sendle’s 2-Day Delivery Guarantee?
If your parcel is not delivered within two business days from the date of the first pickup scan, we will credit you the delivery cost of the parcel back to you.
Please refer to the table below for the which day you should expect delivery after a pickup:
|Pickup day||Delivered by (COB)|
If the first attempted delivery date is later than the date we have outlined as per the table above, Sendle will credit the entire cost of delivery back to your Sendle account.

Is the Sendle’s 2-Day Delivery Guarantee program available when I sell internationally?
Unfortunately not, this program is only available for domestic Australian parcels from and to certain postcodes. You can refer to this list of postcodes here.
What if there was no pick-up or delivery scan, am I still covered by the delivery guarantee?
In such a case a pick-up or delivery scan is missing, Sendle will conduct a thorough investigation to confirm the pick-up and delivery date. Sendle may contact the receiver of the parcel to verify the delivery date.
What can I send with Sendle under their delivery guarantee?
For a registered seller, all parcels that meet Sendle’s shipping criteria will be covered by the Delivery Guarantee. Sendle sends parcels nationwide from 500g up to 25kg. Here are Sendle’s Size and Weight Guidelines.

You can read about the separate eBay’s Guaranteed Delivery program here.
When can we expect more areas to be covered by Sendle under the delivery guarantee?
Soon! Sendle will continue to add more postcodes and regions and will communicate all new additions as and when they are rolled out.
How can I track a parcel I’m sending or receiving?
Parcel tracking is a free Sendle feature. Tracking for both the merchant and buyer is especially important when it comes to the 2-day delivery guarantee for eBay, which is why we’ve got a few options on how to display these details in eBay:
- Tracking is automatically updated when booking via the eBay Integration on the Sendle Dashboard
- With solutions other than the 'eBay integration on the Sendle dashboard', you must ensure that the tracking number is updated against the corresponding order on your eBay account. In order to update your Sendle tracking number manually into your eBay account, simply put ‘Sendle’ as Carrier name and the 6-digit Sendle reference as the ‘Tracking number. Here is a screenshot of how this would look like:
We also encourage you to include your customer's email address when booking with Sendle, so they will receive automatic tracking updates.
Does Sendle pickup on the same day as booking?
Sendle is a next-day scheduled pickup service. If you book your parcel before midnight (AEST), your earliest scheduled pick-up will be the following business day.
Does Sendle pickup and deliver on weekends and public holidays?
No, ordinarily our couriers are on holiday, too, on these dates. On normal business days, we pickup and deliver anytime between 8am and 6pm.
