I have the opposite reasoning. Because I don't know when a model will eventually be shipped, I like to pay once I order. That way I know the models are paid for already. Has several advantages:

I don't have to worry that 10 models I 'pre-ordered', but haven't paid for arrive at the retailer at the same time, thereby a 'shock' to the bank account.

Pre-paying makes so much more sense for budgeting purposes.
