Time from order to payment

40 1 5

How many days does shopify Plus allow between the time I place an order and the time of payment if I pay by cash?
The merchant will be working on the order after it is placed.
I'd like to pay as soon as it's done.

The answer to your question would be up to the discretion of you and the business as the funds are being handled outside of Shopify. A business can legally "authorize" a cardholder's credit card for a specific amount for up to 7 days. The restriction is enforced by the federal government and the credit card companies and not something that Shopify has a hand in; meaning, this rule applies to both Shopify and Shopify Plus business owners. 

The business owner can create a draft order then mark it as paid once they have completed the product and handed it off to you.
