When you attempt to store a card to be charged later, our payment processor may send over a request to your issuing bank for either a $0 or a $1 authorisation to verify that the card is issued and the bank will allow it to be authorised. Our payment processor will first attempt a $0 authorisation. If the $0 authorisation fails, they will then attempt a $1 authorisation. Regardless of whether or not the authorisation is accepted or declined, we reverse the amount immediately. Some people may still see an authorisation for $1 on their credit card statement. The important thing to remember is that this is not a charge, and it will disappear from your statement. Depending on the bank, it will be removed in anywhere from a few minutes to a few weeks.
