Re: Paypal Inc Mark what is that charge for

Everyone,

 

Whenever you add or edit a credit or debit card on PayPal, that information is verified through a temporary $1.00 charge; this is a standard practice for merchants.  This process allows PayPal to ensure the card information is accurate and protect all of our members.

 

This charge is not permanent and will be returned to you.  How long  this takes is up to the card issuer, as each may have their own internal policies as to how long they will place a hold on the funds.  PayPal does not have the option of releasing it to you sooner, as this is controlled by the card issuer, but most will release the funds within five days.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Adrian
