We do it because the price of your chosen substitutes or items sold by weight may increase your order total. The temporary pre-authorisation ensures that you can choose the most suitable substitutes and not worry about slight price differences.
Some banks send SMSes when you complete a purchase. It may look like you’ve been charged twice (your bank may send multiple SMSes) but don’t worry, you'll only be charged once for the items delivered.
The final amount will be charged to you 3 to 5 working days after delivery, but it may take up to 10 working days for it to be reflected on your statement.
We don't temporarily authorise users for a higher amount when they pay with a credit or debit card on honestbee. This is the case because we can charge credit/debit cards for the full final amount, even if it is higher than the total of the checked out cart, but this is not possible for Andriod Pay.
