So here at CurlMart our system categorizes orders into different categories as they progress from you clicking "place order" to us shipping them out the door.
So here is some info on what each status means:
New: You have placed an order but have not paid. Maybe, you are sending us a check or you went out to PayPal to pay but changed your mind.
Paid: We have received payment and will be processing your order shortly.
Printed: Someone has printed your packing slip and is actively packing your order.
Ready for Shipping: We have created a shipping label and are waiting for UPS or USPS to pick it up and scan it.
Complete: Your order is on its way!!! UPS or USPS now has possession of the package.
Hope this helps
