Just bought an item from ebay yesterday and I live in Hawaii, went to check the shipping status and says order confirmed, its coming from Gary, Indiana...so I know it has arrived yet.

Confirmed means that ebay has finished your transaction and it's been sent to the seller successfully. It has nothing to do with shipping or tracking. 

 

 

This is my buying ID.

Then why does this message come up when I click on the tracking number?

It seems to me that whoever scanned the order confirmed uploaded their information after the post office uploaded theirs. The actual scan was done earlier in the day.

I just got the same thing in my tracking "Order Confirmed" on an item I shipped 4 days ago.  That's all that has been noted in the tracking so far.  One other issue is that when I printed the shipping label ebay didn't mark it as shipped or add the tracking number.  I had to go in and add it manually and mark it shipped?  I don't know if that has anything to do with the tracking info?

I just got that Order Confirmed what it actually means is 

the seller printed a shipping label via Ebay or USPS site but he have not take the package to the Post Office yet 

or the pakage has not being scanned.

I've seen that on my own tracking a few hours after I put an item in the mail box, and usually it soon changes to  an Accepted scan.  If the seller hasn't mailed it yet, the message says "Electronic shipping information reeceived."

When the person at the post office scans the package, not only do they scan it, they have to enter a code on the scanner. I check the tracking on my packages as well to make sure they are well on their way and I will see different things as well. It is just whatever code that got punched in. What matters is that there is something showing up on the tracking. It is usually nothing to worry about.

It's not the same as Electronic Shipping Info Received.

I never see Order Confirmed until after I drop the packages at the post office.
