Payment Authorization Holds

When placing an order using a credit card or debit card, two transactions will be posted to your account.

• 1. The issuing bank for your payment card will place a hold on the funds in your account in the amount of your purchase when an order is authorized. This action reserves the funds for the pending charge. Please be aware that a reservation is not a final charge.

• 2. You will subsequently be charged for the order which removes the funds from your account. The charge may vary from the amount of the authorization hold if the order is altered or cancelled prior to shipment.
If an order is cancelled, the authorization hold will be removed by the issuing bank. For details on the removal of authorization holds, please contact the issuing bank’s customer service. Because this process is specific to each bank, we regret that we cannot provide assistance with the removal of authorization holds. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT DEPENDING ON WHO YOU BANK WITH, YOU MAY NOT RECEIVE AN SMS OR ANY OTHER NOTIFCATION THAT A HOLD HAS BEEN REMOVED. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR BANK FOR CONFIRMATION.
