Enom customers should expect to see a “temporary $1USD pre-authorization charge” on the credit card associated with their Enom account. The company cited a merchant provider switch, which requires the temporary pre-auth charge to authenticate credit card holder information.
I presume this announcement was sent to all Enom customers, but in case you missed it, here’s what was sent:
“Notice: temporary $1USD pre-authorization charge
As an ongoing effort to improve payments at Enom, we will be changing to a new merchant provider over the next few weeks. Please be aware that during this transition, you may notice a pre-authorization charge of up to $1 USD on your credit card statement or online credit card portal. This pre-authorization charge is required by the merchant provider to authenticate card holder information, such as the billing address. This is not a permanent transaction, and the charged amount will be rolled back at the end of your billing cycle, if not sooner, depending on your credit card provider.
If you have any concerns, please contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
