    It means Awaiting decision, or about to happen.

    It just means they have to verify the order then ship it basically.

    Yes this is before 'Processing'.

    I wish people would just give straight answers (yes, I can take a joke too).

    But for things like this (where cash is involved), be fair and just give a direct answer. [​IMG]

    Was the item in stock? If so the 'Pending' may change tomorrow (depending on how quick they accept new orders).

    If the item is unavailable - 'Pending' could remain until stock is available (usually they don't take money until 'Processing').

    Usually it's Pending -> Processing -> Packing -> Shipped.

    Also depends on the store.

    which is an indication that they have them in stock, or get them in on an order by order basis.

    I wouldn't worry.
