Has my mini been shipped to me?

So i ordered a Mini off eBay from Barbs Paintball, and today i got 3 e-mails one from Paypal, 1 for Barbs Paintball, and one from UPS. The payapl one said that they had printed a shipping label for my package and had shipped it, the one from barbs said that they had shipped the package via UPS, and the UPS e-mail said that my package had been shipped and it weighed 4 pounds, even a delivery date and all that other fun stuff. Have they shipped me my mini even though it is not even out yet? they did say they would be the first company to get them, but alot of compainies have been saying that.

Whoa...that is weird. But I doubt it's shipped. But how would the UPS know the weight and delivery time? I'm confused.

Barb uses PayPal to ship all the items that she sells on Ebay. This creates a tracking number automaticaly. This just gives Barb a printout to stick to the package when it is ready to ship. I believe the tracking number that you got probaly says "Billing Information Received" "Billing information has been sent to UPS. Check site later for updated shipment status or contact shipper for more details". This doesn't mean that it is on it's way to you, it just means that Barb has received your cleared payment and has the UPS sticker ready to stick on the box when she gets it. After she gets your Mini in, she will ship it out to you and the UPS tracking number will let you know when it ships, just keep checking back on the UPS tracking webpage.

Sounds to me like they shipped it. UPS doesn't send out an email telling you it's been shipped unless they have have scanned a package and have it in hand. I worked for UPS this summer so I'd know. So either it's a really heavy box or there's something inside .

Auctally i dont think it has been shipped from what suprtpr said, it the email UPS sent me (titled: UPS Ship Notification) it said:

This message was sent to you at the request of A.N.S. XTREME to notify you that the package information below has been transmitted to UPS. The package(s) may not have actually been placed with UPS for shipment. To verify when and if the shipment is tendered to UPS and its actual transit status, click on the tracking link below or contact A.N.S. XTREME directly.

So. I then clicked on the tracking link and it says,

Type: Package
Status: Billing Information Received
Shipped To: my city, WI
Shipped or Billed on: 12/05/2006
Service Type: GROUND
Weight: 4.00 Lbs

I wish that was true, but if you go online to UPS.com and "create a shipment" you put in your address,the address that you are shipping to and the size and weight of the package.....and as soon as you pay the item is assigned a tracking number, you then stick the printout with the info on the package and either drop it off at the UPS shipping center, or arrange for UPS to come by and pick it up.

If MOTORHEAD would recheck his tracking number I am pretty sure that it will say "Billing Information Received" "Billing information has been sent to UPS. Check site later for updated shipment status or contact shipper for more details"
