    hey, I just ordered from bbts for the very first time, and when checking the status of the order, I noticed the following:
    "This order is paid and waiting to enter the warehouse"

    I can tell from this sentence alone that the item hasn't shipped yet, however, I was under the impression that they had the stock in hand. By this sentence, do they mean that they have to order it from japan, and then from there, bounce it to me? I'm kinda confused on this, and need some 411 from someone who has used bbts before. Thanks in advance.

    I think that means they have it in hand, stateside, and that it's just in the process of being prepped for shipping. Imagine that it's the grey zone between the shipment arriving from the manufacturer or importer or whatever (depending on the product), and them unpacking it, adding it to whatever else you've ordered, and shipping it to you.

    I'm never in a rush to get stuff, so I don't pay a lot of attention, but it the past it's seemed like the 'warehouse' status never lasted more than a coupla days, and that's at the most.

    Yeah, it's the space between taking the order to their warehouse to be picked and shipped. Trust us, BBTS, is outstanding. You won'thave any problems and if by chance you do, they'll take care of you. Just be patient is the best advice. :)

    I just started buying from them recently, and even with the cheapest shipping it's never taken more then a week to get my order of In Stock items. Totally worth the money, even if some items cost a bit more there.

    cool, thanks for the info guys.

    Now I have another question... where is bbts located? I mean physical address, not URL, naturally. I mean city/state. I'm just wanting to try to guesstimate myself a ballpark figure of when my new micromaster Mach (landcross) will arrive. I believe ups was between 3-7 days.
