Yessir! When I used to pour custom plastics I'd have people asking to place an order and then when I gave a total and asked if it was paypal or money order they would say "I thought I would be paying after I got the plastics and saw they were the right colors". I just simply say "I'm not pouring anything until money is in my account, if I screw something up we will cross that bridge then and I will make it right" If they chose to cancel the order, so be it. Not worth my time to be sending $100 worth of product across the country to never hear from them again. The ONLY time I make an exception now is with walleye jigs or lead weights. I keep a bunch on me and when people I know ask to place an order I can usually just give them what they want on the spot. If they don't have cash on them I don't worry because I know exactly who they are.
Hope you got your money wbgbesox
