Once you've placed an order, Brit + Co will charge you within 24 hours.
If you choose to store your payment information at checkout, Stripe will send a request to the bank for either a $0 or a $1 authorization to verify that the card is issued and the bank will allow it to be authorized. Regardless of whether or not the authorization is declined, Stripe will reverse the authorization request immediately. However, even if the bank declines the authorization, you may still see an authorization for $1 on your credit card statement. The important thing to remember is that this is not a charge, and it will disappear from their statement; depending on the bank, it will be removed from your statement in anywhere from a few minutes to a few weeks.
Stripe will first attempt a $0 authorization in all cases except AMEX (which doesn’t support $0 authorizations - we try a $1 auth right away with AMEX.) If the $0 authorization fails, a $1 authorization will be attempted.
If you check out with Amazon or PayPal you will see a charge on your account linked to Brit Media or Brit+Co within 24 hours of your purchase.
