- Will my card Terms and Conditions change?
From time to time, we may make some changes to the Terms and Conditions. If we think that a change is significant we will send you an email at least 60 days before making the change, unless a more immediate change is required by law or other valid reason.
- A card transaction has been refunded why is it not showing on my account?
It can normally take three to five working days for refunds to be received onto your account. Please contact Customer Services if the refund does not appear on your account after this time.
- What address should I use when making online and telephone purchases?
Always use the address you have registered with us. You can change your address anytime on your online account, or by contacting Customer Services.
- How do my transactions get authorised?
All transactions go via Visa to us for approval. We respond with a yes or a no, depending on the available funds in your account and your account status..
- What is a pre-authorisation?
Every transaction starts with a pre-authorisation. This checks that you have funds available on your card to pay the merchant for their services. The actual transaction will come through within a few days. Until that time, the pre-authorised amount will be held on your card.
For example: if you open a tab at a restaurant, a fixed amount is pre-authorised to cover what you could spend. If your final bill is less than the pre-authorisation amount then it may take a while for the difference to be released back onto your card.
