IMPORTANT NOTICE: In some cases, an authorization will be placed on a customer’s debit card multiple times in an attempt to complete the transaction creating several holds on the USER’S debit account. This often happens when the credit card processing company requires additional verification such as a CVV, Zip Code, address or when the USER’S information is incorrectly provided or mistyped initially, or the USER’S debit card information does not match the information that was entered in the customer’s ticket account.
