I have a small shop and don't charge before a part is shipped or a service is completed but really can't blame anyone who does. There's too many people out there that want something for nothing.

My shop is 'properly funded' but I'll be making some changes with restocking fees and charging in advance for some services.
In some businesses you pay part when contract is signed, part on each milestone, and the remaining upon delivery.
