To simo:

I think there is nothing wrong with the promise-to-pay since it does help to figure out how much copies of the product have a good chance to be sold - assuming that the offering made does state what will be delivered and when. I rather have it this way and then the supplier knowing what income there is to have when they deliver so that they know it is a good idea to start out.

I think the problem with this kind of approach is that in the more or less recent past users were left with less money (this did pay) and in return had semi finished stuff, much delayed products, or even less (that is nothing or the like). In those cases you then might have to think about reqesting a refund (due to no or unsufficient deliver), considering the loss to be a lesson for life, or even pay more on top to geht the product at all. But there are p-t-p or like offerings on the market which are a fair deal!
