Small charge on the card before the expected payment

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

The transaction will appear in the transactions tab in status Pending

The validation transaction will subsequently be reversed back to your account, usually within a few hours, while the amount of the purchase will be charged to the virtual card.

Once reversed, the pending transaction will then disappear from your Transactions tab and Payments tab.
