    What's your preference for holster payment

    Now I'm looking for opinions of the general public here. Makers please refrain from responding.

    What is your preference on custom holster payment?

    This is mainly concerning 2+ month waits. Anything less than that really doesn't become an issue.

    The question is, Would you rather pay closer to the delivery date of your order, or up front?

    • Pay up front
    • Pay within 1-2 weeks of delivery date
    • Doesn't matter to me
    www.ubgholsters.com short wait times. Use 'defensivecarry' as a coupon code for a discount to your order.

    I like to pay when the holster is complete and ready for delivery.

    I don't really care. If there's a trust issue, I wouldn't be ordering in the first place.

    Does this mean you're up to a 10 week wait already!?

    I also like to get the payment out of the way, so pay up front.

    I like to do a lot of research before ordering anything. So, I never really have trust issues. Once the trust issue is out of the way, I leave it up to the vendor to tell me what they prefer.
    When the messenger arrives and says 'Don't shoot the messenger,' it's a good idea to be prepared to shoot the messenger, just in case.

    I have no problem with either method as long as I know up front what the billing method will be. I don't like surprises like placing an order where the website says you won't be charged until the item ships and the day after the order is place your card is charged. As long as the info given is correct I'm OK with it.

    The maker would have to be well-known/trusted guy or I wouldn't be getting the rig from him in the first place. So I'd be real comfortable paying up front.
    He's happy and can afford to buy materials and I don't have to worry about it later.

    I would rather pay upfront so its done and no surprises like the lost check i had recently The second one got to the personl but it took a lot longer than it should have because the first one went MIA

    Also though you didnt ask i would prefer to pay by Credit card or paypal as some places use it the payment is instant so no surprises

    No difference to me as long as it's all agreed on up front. If I didn't trust someone I wouldn't be ordering from him.

    Doesn't really make a difference, but paying up front is slightly preferred.

    I don't mind paying up front IF I'm given realistic honest turn around time. Don't take my money and say, "Two weeks no problem" when they know it's not even close. Battling this now with a custom holster maker.

    A custom-made holster is a custom job. Under no circumstances that I can think of should the holster maker be on tap to foot the bill for a reasonable example of his/her work. It's my responsibility to explore options ahead of time, to research the quality/reliability, and to pay for it. Doesn't matter when. I'm perfectly happy to cover the materials costs in advance, and the work will be mine to cover regardless.

    Either method is fine with me as long as it's clear up front which method is required.

    Now having said that, I can see where a true Custom job (such as engraving, or exotic skin or "odd" gun) SHOULD be paid for up-front as it wouldn't be fair to the artist (and the good leather workers are indeed artists!) to have to eat the cost of materials (and labor) if there is a problem on the buyers end.

    Now if it is a "generic" item, or something standard for a popular gun (1911, Glock etc....) I can see not charging until the item is ready to ship as it can always be sold to another buyer (probably quickly) if the orginal "purchaser" backs out of the deal.

    If I were to set the rules that I'd have to abide by both as a seller and as a buyer: If it is going to take more than 2 months between order and delivery, payment should be just before construction starts.
