My order was declined, but I still see a charge on my card. Why is this?

Although the transaction is marked as declined due to Address or Card Code Verification (CCV) Mismatch, the authorization code, along with the hold on the authorized funds, will remain on the customer's card until the card issuing bank removes the authorization. As a result, the held funds may be subtracted from the customer's available balance, and an online statement may reflect the authorization request which might be mistaken for an actual charge. Most card issuing banks will remove authorizations within 3-7 days.
