Q. Why is my debit card showing two charges from your company? A. Credit or Debit card purchases happen in two steps: authorization and approval. When a purchase is made, an authorization is placed on credit/debit cards that temporarily hold funds on an account. This is not actually a charge on your card. Once the order has been shipped, this authorization becomes an approval and charges your account. Some issuing banks do not release the authorization at the time of approval, but may release it a maximum of 72 hours from the time of order.
