Anything can happen. Lets say you ship to someone who has every intention to pay, but life gets in the way and the buyer simply cannot afford it. Then, we are stuck with the uncomfortable situation where money was wasted shipping, and so was the sellers time (where they could have missed out on a sale elsewhere).

That said, I have shipped before paying but it was on small items to people I knew was good for it eventually. If I were in a hurry (and needed the cash) I would wait for the money first.

Heck, I have done many deals with 3.0Charlie here, he has stayed at my place etc. and we always do the money first, ship second thing. Just keeps things simple and helps avoid uncomfortable spots.
