There aren't any generic examples out there to look at.  The closest thing I could suggest to you would be to look at the php ecommerce projects like Magento, Opencart and WooCommerce (for Wordpress) and even perhaps the API documentation for Shopify.

 

It depends 100% on a companies specific payment processing & fulfillment systems.  

 

In the US, there is consumer law that regulates things like this, in terms of consumer goods and when you are actually allowed to charge someone for a product, but even if we ignore that, the simple fact is that companies often have fulfillment and accounting systems that need to be integrated with, or there is no reason for a system to wait.  What is it waiting for?

 

-Was there inventory available, and could that inventory be reserved?

-Did the payment go through

-Alert the fulfillment system that the order was successful, so that the order can be fulfilled

 

In other words, there is no generic solution to the problem anyone can point you to.
