When you place an order with Good Smile US we may contact your credit card's issuing bank to confirm that your credit card has a valid number, and has not been reported as lost or stolen. This is communicated via a full authorization for the amount of the purchase.
However, we do not actually proceed with the charge at that time. This is simply one of the security measures we use to protect our customers.
Occasionally, a bank may hold the extra authorization on a customer's card. Some banks may hold these authorizations for up to 7-10 business days. You will need to contact your bank if you wish to have this authorization removed.
