What is the difference between pending and posted transactions?

Pending transactions are transactions made on your credit card that have been authorized but not yet been posted to your account.  The value of these transactions is adjusted against your available credit but will not be reflected in your current balance until these transactions are posted to your account.

Posted transactions are completed transactions that appear on your account and are reflected in your current balance.

Sometimes a transaction may appear as both pending and posted transaction while it is being processed.  It does not necessarily mean that you will be charged twice.  It can take up to 5 business days for a transaction to disappear from pending transaction history.  You will only be charged for the amount of the posted transaction.
