6.4. Why was my credit card "billed" before the order was processed?

Once you place your order on our site and we verify your credit card information, the funds required to complete the transaction are placed "on hold" through the financial institution that issues you your card. At this point you have not actually been "billed" for this purchase, however it will come into play for future purchase's credit limit computations. Once we process your order as outlined above, we move the funds from the "hold" status to an actual credit card purchase. Please note that some on-line banking applications or web sites may indicate the "hold" as a purchase even before it has been moved into an actual purchase. A&S Motorcycles has no control over how your financial institution chooses to display these transactions. However you can be sure that we will never charge your card until we have actually processed your order.
