What is the 1 USD (or local currency equivalent) authorisation fee?

When you add a card, or update information on the credit card linked to your PayPal account, we make sure your card is still valid. We do this by temporarily holding a small amount on your card, but you will not actually be charged 1 USD (or local currency equivalent).
