When Will My Credit Card Be Charged?
Upon placing an order on our site, our system will immediately 'authorize' your credit card for the purchase amount. This authorization is how our shopping system 'knows' to approve your purchase and provide you with an invoice. While some credit card statements will show this as a charge right away, this authorization is not an actual charge. Once we verify product availability and your transaction is approved by our fraud department, we will prepare your order for shipping and charge your credit card at that time. No credit card will be charged before product is shipped. If somehow we cannot fulfill your order, your authorization amount will be voided and released from our system within 48 hours.
