TrackThePack Shutting Down

Unfortunate news 🙁 … last night I received the following communication below, stating that the famous packaging tracking system will be shutting down.  I’ve been a fan of TrackThePack since it came out, and I think it definitely helped me tracking all the packages into one place.

Hi there,

I’m bummed to be writing this email, but here we are.

As of March 31, 2013, TrackThePack (Personal, Pro and Commercial versions) will be shut down.

That means no more packages will be trackable and our servers will be unreachable on that date. 🙁

Nearly 7 years ago, what started as me scratching my own itch for a toy business I was running, has turned in to an incredibly useful tool that’s touched the internet lives of ten’s of thousands of users and millions of packages. Unfortunately, the economics of it all just don’t add up for us from a business perspective

Alternatives for tracking all of your packages in one place:
Slice (what I’ve switched to)

I appreciate all of you giving TrackThePack a go over the years and taking the time to use and provide feedback.

If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to reply to this email and ask. I’m still here to help.

Try the other versions and I hope that you get the same if not a better experience.
