I see a $1 authorization charge from FreshDirect on my credit card/bank account. What is that?

When you authorize credit card payment for a new card, FreshDirect will execute a $1 authorization or temporary charge on your credit card to verify that your account is valid and that the information you provide to FreshDirect is correct.

This authorization does not cost you anything and will expire in a few days (debit card authorizations typically expire in 24 to 48 hours, depending on your bank's rules).

If you experienced trouble enrolling with FreshDirect, you may see multiple $1 authorizations. These multiple charges (up to $5) will expire in a few days.
