    I placed an order yesterday, looks like I was the 21st customer (order # 21) and yesterday evening the status went from 'awaiting fulfilment' to 'completed'. I paid the extra $ to have it sent via DHL because I'm impatient [​IMG] and I like to be able to track my shipments.

    The email that they sent me however reads:
    (colour & bold is in the email)

    This morning I look at the website, order status screens, and I can find no mention of a tracking number on the website.

    Does 'Completed' not mean shipped?

    If it has shipped, when do I receive the tracking number?

    Thanks!

    It might not mean shipped, maybe when its shipped you will get a new update saying Shipped

    Hopefully Admin will clear this up

    Thanks, I have filed a support ticket.

    If Completed != Shipped then they should indicate that... maybe in the FAQ, explaining what the order statuses mean. Or a popup if you click on the status itself.

    I couldn't find the tracking number either (I was also one of the early people to order), but they sent the tracking number when the order was shipped. In this case, completed does not mean shipped.

    In this case they really do need it in the FAQ or a listing of what the statuses mean. It might be a cultural thing, but where I'm from, complete means that the last step has been finished and nothing further will happen. Maybe to them it just means the administrative stuff is complete but the shipping comes later, or something like that...

    Anyhow, they ought to spell it out a little more clearly.

    The site must be having a few glitches, my pre-order was firstly marked as refunded, and now it is re-marked as a pre-order and i have finally received an e-mail confirming it as a pre-order.

    I received an email from my support ticket, they say there's a bug that causes the tracking info to appear when the order is not yet shipped.

    So, 'Complete' is not yet shipped, and the tracking number is not available because it isn't yet shipped.

    Hopefully it will ship soon! [​IMG]

    Wow I was almost order # 380, and I got mine for $29.95. Is that correct? [​IMG]

    On topic: Mine says awaiting fulfillment, and tracking is unavailable. It doesn't bother me though. [​IMG]

    The order number is site-wide. It applies to all orders not just the DSTWO. [​IMG]
