When they ship but they may run the card when you do order to ensure funds are available and/or the card is valid. Also this is in the US, it may not be the same in another country.

Do they put a hold on the money till it ships?

If it is a debit card they may. Logic says do not buy unless you have the money today.

I paid on a debt card and money was taken straight away.

I paid with a debit card too and they charged it straight away. I feel pretty confident that they wont run off with my cash though...

I paid with a debit card, they put a charge to check the funds were there, then cancelled the charge.. So I presume they'll charge me when it ships.
