As part of the initial order confirmation process we will request Pre-Authorisation of payment from your card issuer, this will show as a pending transaction for the full value of the order for up to 5 days, if stock is not available at PDS within that time the pending transaction will be voided releasing funds back into your available balance. When stock becomes available we will process a new transaction capturing relevant funds at that point. Please make sure you have adequate funds in your account around the stock due date.
