How much do you charge to my card when confirming my debit or credit card?

We take the extra step to confirm your card so that we can verify that the card is valid and that you are the card owner.

Below is a list of how much we charge to cards in different countries. If we can't determine the currency of the card or we don't support that currency, we charge 1.95 USD to the card.

Once the card is confirmed, we will immediately refund the card. Depending on your card issuer, it can take up to 30 days for the refund to appear on your card statement.
