Membership Info : Paid Membership

Why did I receive a one dollar pre-authorizaton charge on my credit card?

When becoming a member, we asked you for account information so that we could bill to your account our low yearly membership fee. In order to verify that the account information that was given to us was accurate, a $1.00 Pre-Authorization Fee was charged to the account to verify that it is an active account.

This charge is placed ahead of time so that your account can be processed effectively and efficiently. Once the account is validated, the $1.00 charge is reversed from your account shortly thereafter.
