Preauthorization Charges

We request a $1 preauthorization from your issuing bank anytime you add a new card at checkout or to the Payment Methods section of your profile. The $1 is not a charge, rather a way for us to ask your bank if we can approve the card for a transaction. Regardless of the outcome, the $1 preauthorization is released, and the authorization will disappear from your statement between one day and a few weeks.
