    I was under the impression they charge you when it ships. Not at the moment you place the order.

    My card was charged.

    Anyone else have this happen to them?

    Did you use paypal? They do charge if you use paypal since there is no way for them to do an authorization through paypal. If you paid some other way it shouldn't charge until it ships.

    Sometimes, the card company holds the amount. I think that's what happened with mine then. It wasn't "charged" per se, but I was told it was a floating charge.

    From strymons website: "You may see a temporary authorization on your card, but it is not an actual charge." I guess this is what you're seeing.
