Yesterday we started with the shipping process. The actual shipping will begin tomorrow, and yesterday and today we are adding each order in system of different shipping companies depending on your countries and shipping method selected. As we don't have any direct integration we have to manually copy the address, select which shipping method to use, weight, insurance, print shipping labels, etc... its a lot of work for 100 orders. We have to rethink this for the future! Smile

Meanwhile we are finishing the translation of the instructions, and I have a question, hope you can help me with this.
How do you say in English when the magician make a mistake, but this is part of the plot, and finally at the end he solves the problem. Im not talking about a sucker effect, but instead like a prediction that is wrong, but then the magician turn it upside down for example, and now the prediction is correct.
Ive asked on a FB group some weeks ago, and several people told me this is called "Magician in trouble", but I would like to confirm, or otherwise hear better suggestions.

Thanks!
No, I dont know what im doing. Nowbody knows what im doing. Thats why its called investigation.

Martin - I will endorse the phrase "magician in trouble" but what happens might also be described as a "reversal of fortune."

I would not abbreviate it in a word or term, as not all people who order this trick are proficient in the English language and such certain meanings. I would explain everything so that everyone can understand it and if a small execution is necessary, I would do this. A small example is always the best way to make something understandable.

Thanks for all suggestions! With 2 hours of video explanations I think all aspects are mostly explained Smile
Still the written instructions go even deeper.
Anyway I took Magic Dust advice and instead of using an specific term, I simply explain it.

Thank you.

I can not check everyone. Many were sent yesterday, many others were sent today. Tomorrow will ship most of the pending ones, and probably some others on Monday. As for every country we need to ship with different shipping company, and some of you paid for urgent shipping, others regular shipping... we have to improve this for the next time. Its really difficult.
Moreover, some of you didn't/couldnt apply the discount coupon correctly, so each one we prepare we have to check if a refund has to be made. And on top of that, we have dozens of emails with questions, requests, etc from the orders. So we need to check that if there is any special treatment to be made to each of the orders. Really really time consuming Smile

Martin,

I won't add to your email load unnecessarily. But I'm taking you at your word (above). If I haven't received a shipping notice email with tracking by Monday, I will be reaching out.
