Payment Pending without any purchases?

Recently, Logan <removed> and KSI had a boxing match. the only way to watch this live was using the Dazn app. It cost $21.70 and in my account I only had $20(i did not know the tax was 1.70 at the time). So I went to use PayPal to make this payment. Before making the purchase it stated."When you agree to future payments, you may temporarily see a pending authorization on your card for $8.00 USD to ensure your future purchases are successful." Well... The payment was not successful as I did not have the money in my account. I then attempted making the payment again with PayPal (I still did not know about the tax) it told me the same thing and took out another $8(total $16 taken). Then, I put another $20 in my account(now I have $24) and then ended up just adding my card to the website, and it worked.

 

But, 2 Days later, Im still missing the $16 in my account that PayPal took out to"ensure your future purchases are successful."

 

Am I going to get this money back?

It said, “When you agree to future payments, you may temporarily see a pending authorization on your card for $8.00 USD, etc” .

 

These will expire and funds will be released. Just keep an eye on wherever you see the pending charges for release. These pending temporary auths are typical for online transactions.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂

How long can these transactions take? It’s been about 4 days now.

Hi DayDream1n6, 

 

The timeframe for these can vary. Some are released within a few days and some can take up to 30 days. This will depend on the merchant and how long their authorisations are for. You can reach out to them and ask them to release the authorisations for you. 

 

Thanks for your post,
