When Did The Play Store Charge You For Your Nexus 4?

In anticipation of my upcoming liberation from Verizon, I'm planning on getting a Nexus 4 from the Play Store. I could get an iPhone 5 with LTE for $200 but the tyranny just ins't worth it. I've been on Verizon since 2005 and I'm tired of them and their policies.

It says it ships in 2-3 weeks. I'm curious, when you ordered yours, how soon did the Play Store charge your card? I'd feel a bit slighted if they charged me on the spot rather than when it ships.

Just wondering, especially since I'll be waiting almost a month for it to get here.
