Hello @skeenyvr,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

Because you updated the credit card the $1 charge is actually a temporary preauthorization from your credit card company, basically giving the merchant the green light to charge your card for the full amount when your final charge is made.

 

By preauthorizing your card $1, they don't have to place a larger hold against your account.

The $1 charge disappears when the final amount is no longer pending, the preauthorization is lifted and the $1 charge will not show up on your final statement.

Hey @skeenyvr and thanks for reaching out.

 

This charge showed up on your credit card statement?

 

Did you see this charge show up anywhere on your Fido bill?
