Just curious - what is a typical wait time between paying for a new Stern game and getting a shipment notification? Will a distributor normally wait until your specific game is ready to ship before sending the final invoice? Or will they send an invoice when the first games start shipping, you pay, and then have to wait weeks or months before shipment?

Are all distributors different, or do they all have the same policy?

Depends on the distributor and the availability of the game in question.

Understood. I always thought with Stern that you wouldn't get an invoice to pay in full until your specific game was ready to ship. This makes sense to me, since Stern is the established manufacturer, not a start-up, etc, etc. My current experience is very different - paid in full over 6 weeks ago and still do not have shipping confirmation...

I paid in full as well about 3 weeks ago. Each distributor has their in stock machines and their allocated from Stern. Mine is currently or soon to be on the line (AIQ premium) The distributor will sell you an allocated machine which will be shipped to you straight from Stern. Some distributors have you pay in full up front, while others take a down payment and you pay in full before shipping occurs. If you call your distributor he or she can tell you when to expect yours.
