I regularly do my grocery shopping online, when taking payment they (all major supermarkets I believe, and maybe many other online retailers too) “pre-authorise” your card with a £1 charge to verify it exists and has funds available. After you receive your shopping they refund that and charge you the actual amount.
In the Mondo app I still see the original £1 charge (almost a week ago), followed by the actual transaction a couple of days later. When I used to use my old fashioned bank’s debit card for this the £1 would only appear in “pending transactions” and would disappear on the day the real transaction was made
So why am I still seeing it a week later in Mondo? Is this an actual bug in which I’ll be losing £1 every time I shop online? Or is it just a case of me needing to wait longer for it to be refunded? If the latter then that’s fine, it’s only £1 so don’t mind if it simply needs more time. Just seeking clarification on how these charges are handled by Mondo/the app and if it’s a bug or not.
