I Am Noticing More Than One Charge on My Account, but I Have Only Placed One Order! Why Am I Seeing Multiple Charges?
What you are seeing in your account is a result of the financial institution’s policy regarding what they call a Pending Transaction. Even when no charge is actually made, the financial institution will hold the funds as "pending" in anticipation of the expected charge. Different financial institutions have different policies regarding this type of transaction.
The following is a general definition as provided by one such financial institution. Your institution may have a different policy, so we would recommend contacting your personal financial institution for further details.
Credit Card Pending Transactions
A Pending Transaction is an item that has not yet posted to your account but is pending and therefore held against your available credit. Normally, a pending item converts into a posted transaction, but if a merchant does not complete the transaction it will expire and the temporary funds hold will be removed. Some merchants such as gas stations will only authorize your account for $1.00; however, the transaction will post to your account for the total amount of your purchase. If you see a transaction listed as pending that has already posted to your account, it will no longer have an effect on your available credit, however it will continue to display as a Pending Transaction for 7 days from the transaction date.
