Authorization Hold Question



I put in an order for the Oculus Rift S releasing on May 21. BestBuy put an authorization hold of ~$424 on my card. However, these funds have not been released (I'm using an international card), and now I don't have enough money on my card. Will the charge deduct payment from the current authorization hold?

Re: Authorization Hold Question

Hello, DuyNgọcMơ,

Welcome back to the forums. That’s a great question. 

In most cases, the authorization hold will be removed as the charge is processed. Sometimes, however, international credit cards will not allow the hold to be removed in a timely manner. 

My best advice is to reach out to your credit card provider to give them a heads up about this. They should be able to make sure it processes correctly.
