Google £1 authorisation payments

(Kelvin) #1

I have a lot of £1 Google payments and subsequent refunds cluttering my transaction history. These get triggered for all sorts of Google payment reasons, but the dominant one for me is that it seems Google does a £1 hold when doing card autofill on Android to verify the entered CVV and “unlock” the card in the browser. Is it possible to merge the payment + refund transactions and replace these with “Active card check”? A possible issue is that it might not be possible to differentiate between authorisation holds and actual £1 payments.
