When is my card charged?

If the project you’re backing is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged.

If you've backed a project that's still live and you're seeing a charge on your bank statement, it's likely a temporary authorization of funds. The time it takes for an authorization to clear depends on the bank, but typically takes 1–3 days. You won't be charged for your pledge until the project you backed has ended successfully.
