Does apple charge payment right away?

So I know the new imacs are available to ship in January, if I order now will they charge my card immediately or once its being prepared to ship?

Usually when it's shipped, but I would be prepared for the charge to hit at any time after you order.

I ordered an hour ago and was charged right away. Guess it depends.

+1

A hold for the full amount was put on my card before it shipped so it's best to have the funds available. The hold went away after a week or so.
My card was officially charged when it shipped.

Apple ran a "Pending" charge against my cc over the weekend of Dec 1 & 2.

That pending charge came off my cc by Tuesday December 4. The only charge that went through with my order was for AppleCare.

I received my iMac on Thursday December 13, and it was several days (it may have been the following Monday) before the iMac charge appeared on my CC.

Once during the "Processing items" stage, the Apple charge appeared AGAIN on my cc under "Pending" but then went away.

Apple, any vendor for that matter, wants to know that they will be able to collect their payment prior to shipping the order.

my status on the order is preparing for shipment and strangely I still haven't been charged.
