Multiple ChargesUpdated 10 months ago
Don't fret if you see multiple charges right away! When you submit an order through your credit card company, an authorization hold for the amount of the order is processed as a pending transaction. An authorization hold is not a charge and may appear to be an amount slightly higher than the order total (generally it is $1 additional). This amount is money held by your credit card company, which guarantees that funds will be available when the order is billed. Any pending charges are removed once the order has been successfully processed.
If you encounter a problem when placing an order, several authorizations may appear on your statement. These will be deleted by the credit card company automatically, usually within 7-10 business days.
