why is there a $1 pending charge on my card?

when you add a new credit card for the first time (either via the bounty, subscription, or manage payment pages), we initiate a $1 pre-authorization charge. this lets us verify the card belongs to you, and will temporarily show up on your bank statement as a pending charge. after a few days, this pending charge will disappear completely, and you will not be charged for this pre-authorization

all charges from heartpie are processed in the united states, and will appear as "xotto labs" on your bank statement
