What Does “Unsuccessful Delivery Attempt” Mean?
When you receive an “Unsuccessful Delivery Attempt” alert, it indicates that the carrier service assigned by Lazada attempted to deliver your package but was unable to do so.
The reasons behind unsuccessful delivery attempts can vary and may include factors such as:
No One at Home
This is the usual suspect that causes the alert.
If no one is available at the provided address to accept the delivery, the carrier will mark it as an unsuccessful attempt.
This could occur if the recipient (or someone else at the address) is not at home, at work, and is simply unavailable to receive the package.

No Safe Place to Leave the Package
In situations where a signature is not stringently required, the carrier will look for a safe place to leave the package on the property.
However, if no safe place can be found (from bad weather or theft), the carrier will not leave the item.
In this case, an “Unsuccessful Delivery Attempt” alert will be triggered.
Restricted Access to the Delivery Address
In some cases, the carrier might encounter difficulty accessing certain premises due to security measures, gated communities, or restricted entry policies.
This will obviously impede successful delivery.

Remote areas, locations with poor network coverage, or places where the carrier service cannot operate efficiently may experience unsuccessful delivery attempts.
Finally, if the address provided by the customer during the order placement contains errors, such as misspellings, wrong postal codes, or incomplete information, the carrier may be unable to locate the intended destination.
What Should You Do if You Receive this Alert?
When you receive an “Unsuccessful Delivery Attempt” alert, it is essential to take appropriate actions to ensure the successful delivery of your package.

Including, potentially, detail of when the next attempt to deliver the item will be made.
