When you enter your credit or debit card to authorise payment, Yellow’s payment provider, will send a request to the issuing bank for either a $0 or a $1 authorisation to:
- verify your card is issued, and
- the bank is permitting your authorisation
This is not a charge on your account, the authorisation request is reversed immediately whether the authorisation is declined or successful. However, you may still see an authorisation for $1 on your credit card statement (even if the bank declines the authorisation). Depending on your bank, this will be removed within 7 days.
