    Question Shipping != shipping?

    Ok, since Adrenalynn said I'm a big boy now, i'll start my first post with a need for some english translation.

    As you know I've ordered a bioloid kit, and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival.
    Now, the website states that my order's current status is : shipping.

    At that, i sent them an email to ask where i could find the tracking number, since the order specifically states "with tracking number" but i didn't find it on the website.

    So they respond, and i quote: "The tracking number will be sent to you as soon as the order is dispatched from the warehouse."

    What am i missing here? i thought 'shipped' meant it was, well not necessarily on a ship, but at least on a bus, a car, a scooter for that matter.

    Sooo...
    Can anyone translate what it is they exactly mean?

    "Shipping" was probably just a loose term they're using for the process of getting it out of their warehouse. "Shipped" is probably what you want to wait for as far as status on it, and when they'll send the tracking number.

    Shipping means its in the process of being boxed up and sent out. It hasn't left their warehouse yet, but the order has been received and it is being processed. once it has been picked up by whatever carrier is getting it, you should receive an e-mail with a tracking number. Shipped would mean it left, shipping (present tense) means it hasn't yet left them. I suppose 'Processing' would be a more appropriate status.
