    Apple.com double billing?

    Hi guys,

    I ordered my IPad from apple.com on the 25th of June and my credit card was billed immediately and my bank called me to confirm the transaction. I received an email today from Apple.com to say that the IPad had shipped and about an hour later my credit card was billed again for the same amount by Apple.com. Again my bank called me, but this time I hadn't authorized the transaction.

    Has anyone else had this problem? If so, did you need to sort it out with Apple.com or was it sorted out through their normal processes?

    Thanks
    Dale

    You may find that the initial charge was actually a pre-authorization to insure the card was OK. If you see two itemized charges on your account, Apple will reverse one. Of course, the issuing bank will do a chargeback as well.

    Thanks, that's what I was thinking. Do you think I should call Apple.com to confirm or just leave it to see what happens?

    Check your account online it should show if you have a debit and a pending give them a call and they can release the pending but you may find your bank is overly cautious and the first call was for the pending and the second was for the actual debit

    If you're concerned, Call the bank...they have real-time access to your account that Apple does not.

    Thanks everybody, I checked my account online and there is only today's amount pending so that other pending obviously reversed as figmo10 said. Neither amount has actually gone through but I'll give it a day or 2 and check again to make sure.

    They didn't take the money from my account until a day before I got my iPad so it was already in transit for three days before the money was actualy taken not just pending

    With all due respect, I don't think Apple trusts you enough to ship your iPad and put the charges through several days later.

    I have noticed that some credit/debit activity varies in terms of when it hits the bank's online system. I can buy something at Wal-Mart or my local grocery store on my debit card and it has already posted by the time I come home! OTOH, charges from my gas station (you know, the one that changes their prices 3-4 times a day for some unknown reason), can take several days before it shows up on my account.

    iTunes is actually a perfect example of this. My account is tied to my debit card (no, I am not going to give you the number and expiration date!) and it can take several days before I get the email with the charges. But rest assured, Apple has confirmed that you have the money available or you wouldn't even get to download your purchase.

    But to dale600rr, if you did not authorize the second call to charge your account, you may want to call Apple and check the status of your order just to make sure. BTW, I find it interesting that a bank would call you to make sure a charge is legitimate. I have been doing business with the same bank for over 30 years and I don't think they offer any such service.

    This happened to my friend who bought an iPod Touch. Just call Apple and they will fix it in a couple of minutes.
