Please note that this does not indicate that the order has been shipped out. During this stage , the order is sent to our shipping department in preparation for shipment. In the event that an item you ordered is unavailable, you will receive an email from customer service to resolve any issues. Additionally, tracking information will be updated once the shipping courier scans the package.
