Retailers Charging credit accounts on pre-orders

Any thoughts on retailers charging credit accounts on pre-orders?

A month ago I Pre-ordered a $2600 musical instrument that has an ETA in March or April. I got a notice from my credit company the other day showing that my account has been charged. I called the retailer about it and was told I should have seen the message that they were going to charge my account but may have missed it with all the clicks to get the order placed. I did not see it. Also, I have pre-ordered quite a bit of gear over the past several years from the same trusted retailer in Indiana and have never had my card charged until the item shipped.

I am curious about what others think.
