Authorize.net use a 2 step payment process to help prevent fraud etc.
– The 1st step is the authorization transaction where the funds are set aside out of your account to be allocated for the next transaction. At this point the money is not yet in our (Ireland Engineering’s) account, it is being held by your financial institution.
– The 2nd step is the capture of the funds by us from the holding company. This 2nd step usually happens right before your items will ship (except for certain circumstances), and the funds that were held by your bank are transferred to our account.
NOTE #1: There may be 2 transactions that show up on your account/statement. Please be aware that these are NOT two charges, they are two transactions. Your account will only be charged once for the order. (This is especially common if you changed/removed items from your order)
NOTE #2: Authorization transactions will expire if not captured within a certain time-frame. This expiration date depends on your bank. If expiration of the authorization occurs the funds automatically get returned back to your account. If your authorization expires before we have time to capture the funds we will contact you for your card details as we do not have access to that information. If you used PayPal we will have to send over another payment request.
NOTE #3: Voided or refunded authorizations/captures will take a few days to return to your account depending on your banking institution. Contact your bank to find out how long this process takes.
NOTE #4: If you place an order that does not go through, sometimes the authorization hold will still show up on your account. It is a nuisance since your funds are no longer available to you. This usually clears itself up in a few days, and the funds are returned to you. If not, or you need the funds sooner, you will need to contact your financial institution yourself to get this cleared up. We do not have the ability to edit or void payments on orders that do not go through.
