I just bought something online and I can see a small charge to my virtual card which is different from what I was expecting to be charged, why is that?

Sometimes merchants charge a small amount to validate a card ahead of the actual payment which is processed in batches throughout the day.

The validation transaction is subsequently reversed and the amount of the purchase is charged to the virtual card, usually within a few hours.
