O

My bank is showing a pending charge, but my card was declined.

If a debit card or check card is used to make a payment, and the purchase was not accepted for any reason (failed expiration date, zip code, or CCV verification), please be aware that most banks will hold the "authorized" funds (counting against your balance until the authorization clears) even if your order was rejected by our security measures. Such authorizations are merely "pending" charges, and funds will not be transferred because the charge attempt failed our security measures.

In most cases, you don't need to do anything, but monitor your funds and watch the pending charges drop off of your statement within a few business days.

If you are unsure, you can call your credit card issuer in order to determine their policy for releasing these pending authorizations.
