Why does my credit card statement show a charge? My order didn’t go through.

When a card is declined for whatever reason, the charge still shows up briefly on the credit card records. My understanding is that this allows for a potential override of the decline (something we never do), rather than having the charge disappear entirely. These declined charges fall off the records after a short while, generally no more than a couple of business days. Rest assured, if your card was declined, you have not been charged.
