Order status "order confirmed"?

What does this status mean? I cant find any explanation in the support sites or in the forum. my previous status was “processing”.
Thanks!

I’m not 100% sure what it means, but that is always the second step.
First you place and order, then the order is processed.
When that is done the status is confirmed until the next step happens.

Anyway, there was (is?) a delay in orders. Many people who ordered very early are only receiving their phones now:

This status means, that your payment has been received.

Edit:
The status message “Rhenus prepare shipping” is missing on this list.

What means the status “order confirmed”. I paid in august, not now.
During one month the status of my order was “Rhenus prepare shipping”.
Last week it was “processed” and now it is “order confirmed”.
Tell me the real sense of “order confirmed”.

Well that’s a mistake in the system then. Order confirmed should be before prepare shipping. So probably the prepare shipping status was wrong.

My guess would be an error as well.
For many people the status recently changed from “Rhenus prepare shipping” to “Preparing order”.
I guess that should have hapened in your case as well and it just by accident / program-error fell back.
Try contacting support to let them know of this mistake, so they can fix it.
