Why is there a $1 charge on my card?

Here's why you might see a $1 charge on your card.

Breather uses a third-party payment processor, Stripe, for all transactions and cards that are stored on our platform. 

When adding a card to our platform, Stripe will send over a request to your issuing bank for either a $0 or a $1 authorization (different banks permit different amounts) to verify that the card has been issued and the bank will allow it to be authorized.

Regardless of whether or not the authorization is declined, Stripe will reverse the authorization request immediately. However, even if the bank declines the authorization, some members may still see the request for $1 on their credit card statement. The important thing to remember is that this is not a charge, and it will disappear from your statement. Depending on the bank, it may take a few business days for this request to be removed from your statement.

Please note that this charge is not related to our pre-authorization charge. For more information on our pre-authorization policy, click here.
