What Is a Temporary Authorization of Funds?
When placing an order with Crucial.com your credit card statement could show two pending charges. One charge is a temporary authorization of funds (preauthorization charge) to check that there is a sufficient balance available to cover the charge. The second entry is one that will clear for the final sale. Temporary authorization transactions do not necessarily reflect the final transaction amount. After the transaction is settled, the final charge amount will be reflected in the accurate amount. The preauthorization charge may appear on your card statement as a temporary hold for a duration of time governed by your card issuer’s standard practices until the final sale posts. Please contact your card issuer if you have questions regarding how they handle authorizations and subsequent charges for online transactions.
