My order says "Order Placed". What does this mean?

Order Placed means that we have your item in-stock at our warehouse, and it will be shipped out of our warehouse within the next 2-8 weeks.
Shipments using TOM Surface Mail usually take some time to get prepared as we require a few days to get a shipping container prepared.

Please note that the frequency that containers are available to us is not fixed, and it make take a few weeks for your shipment to begin preparation.

You'll get an email once it leaves our warehouse, and we'll be sending another email once your shipment gets closer to the US with your tracking number. TOM Surface Mail usually takes between 1-2 months to be delivered after it has left our warehouse.
