Whenever a customer enters a new credit card into their account with us or updates their card information our credit card verification system places an authorization request, which places a temporary hold for $1.10 on to your account; this is done to ensure that the card is valid and active, and to help protect against fraud. This authorization is a request our system makes to your card for $1.10 to be reserved, so it is not an actual charge. Please be assured that no funds have actually been deducted from your account, and this authorization amount should be released and returned back to your available funds within 1-3 business days depending on your specific financial institution.
Re-Authorizing A Card
When a change is made to the address information in an account that is marked as the billing address, this causes the associated credit card to become unauthorized in our system. To reauthorize the card you will just need to go to your Manage Credit Card page of your account, click to edit the specific card details, and re-enter the credit card security ID. No other information should need to be repeated in order to re-authorize the card to be active again for future transactions.
