Just in time production and delivery is what a significant part of the
industry has been moving towards for some time. Charge only for goods
delivered (there will be times when you can't - delay payment capture or
refund when this becomes apparent) and project a reasonable estimate of how
long it will take to deliver the goods. 

It's a relatively common model and there are a number of companies
specializing in providing the eCommerce platforms, fulfillment, logistics
and sometimes warehouses (Digital River comes to mind to name one of the
biggest players).
