Answer

 

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful  


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh  

 

It is not a pre-requisite for the validity of the Qurbāni that the animal or the share of the animal should be paid for before it can be slaughtered.

وأما ركنها فذبح ما يجوز ذبحه في الأضحية بنية الأضحية في أيامها لأن ركن الشيء ما يقوم به ذلك الشيء والأضحية إنما تقوم بهذا الفعل فكان ركنا كذا في النهاية
  (الفتاوى الهندية  ج 5 , ص 291)

It is sufficient that the person has merely purchased the animal or its share before Qurbāni. Payment of the animal or its share can be made after Qurbāni.

And Allah knows best
