When you sign up to Playster or update your payment information, you might notice a $1 charge or authorization hold on your statement.
Like many other sites, Playster sends authorization requests to your financial institution to ensure your payment method is valid. These requests are not charges, but in some cases they temporarily affect your available account balance, by $1 in the United States or an equivalent amount for the currency in your region.
The time it takes to remove authorization requests varies between financial institutions. Typically, this hold is removed after 72 hours.
If you have questions about the way your financial institution handles authorization requests, please contact its customer service department. In some rare cases, certain banks will hold the authorization for 30 days or more.
If you’ve been charged by Playster unexpectedly and you believe it is not an authorization request, please contact our support team and we’ll be happy to investigate.
