Credit Card Processing
PENDING CHARGES FOR PAYMENT CARDS
If your payment method is a credit or debit card, you authorize AdventSource to place a pending charge to your payment card, along with your charges for purchased items, sales tax, and shipping. Pending charges are used to verify your billing address and the validity of your payment card; they are temporarily held funds. Once your order is shipped the pending charge will settle for the actual amount of your order. Pending charges will reduce the funds available on your payment card.
FEES RELATING TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD
You are solely responsible for any fees charged to your payment method by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, membership, overdraft, insufficient funds, and credit limit overage fees.
AdventSource is sensitive to your concerns regarding the security of using your credit cards to perform transactions over the Internet. Therefore, we securely transmit and store credit card information using an Application Programming Interface (API) with the Authorize.Net servers that support PCI DSS compliance standards.
Using the Authorize.Net API allows us to not store credit card information on our website, which makes it very difficult for someone to steal your credit card information.
