Buying a Bike

If the shop has to order, do you plunk down your card and pay all or just a deposit?

I paid in full, but delivery is slipping. I'm not worried about the shop or manufacturer, just wondering how others handle such situations.
If I were picking up the bike at the shop I would give them a deposit, with full payment at time of pickup. If having the bike shipped to me I would expect to pay the full amount up front.
It depends on the store. I ordered my e-bike. No deposit. The shop owner delivered it to my home. I cycled into the shop to pay two days later. Probably not typical but great customer service.
