To guarantee sufficient funds are available for your initial payment, a small authorization hold may be put on your credit or debit card. Once an order is canceled, the retailer immediately releases any hold placed on the item(s).

The funds should be in your account anywhere from one to seven business days after the release, according to your bank.

It’s possible to run into this problem if you’re not using the latest version of the application, if your browser’s cookies aren’t up to date, or if your internet connection is poor.
