Stripe is our credit card processor. When a Dealer makes an offer, a $1 authorization charge may appear on their credit card. This charge will reverse and disappear from the Dealer’s account in up to 7 days. Stripe uses this temporary charge to verify that a credit card is valid.
When a Dealer makes an offer, Stripe shall authorize payment of the MotorTango fee to guarantee funds are available. This authorization will be valid for up to 7 days and the charge may show as pending in the Dealer's account. When a Seller accepts the Dealer's offer, the MotorTango fee will be charged to the Dealer's credit card. If the Dealer's offer is not accepted, the initial Stripe authorization will cancel out within the initial 7 days from the offer.
