A pre-authorised payment is a type of payment method that we offer on our website. With this method, we obtain your authorisation to charge your account for the purchase amount before actually processing the payment. This means that we will place a hold on the funds in your account for the amount of the purchase, and wait until the order is ready to be shipped or fulfilled before actually processing the payment.
The purpose of this pre-authorisation is to ensure that we receive payment for your order, while also protecting you from the risk of fraudulent charges. Additionally, using a pre-authorised payment method means that we can easily modify your order if necessary. For example, if an item is out of stock or you wish to cancel or add an item to your order, we can do this quickly and easily without having to go through the process of refunding and recharging your account.
If you choose to cancel your order, we will not take the money from your account. However, please note that the pre-authorisation hold may still show up on your account for around a week as a "shadow" transaction. This is because it takes time for the bank or credit card company to remove the hold from your account. Rest assured that the hold will disappear automatically when we do not process the order.
Using a pre-authorised payment method is a common practice used by many online retailers to streamline the payment process and make it more secure for both the customer and the merchant. So when you choose to use this method, you can rest assured that your payment is secure, and any changes or cancellations can be made seamlessly.
