After placing an order on the LAVA MUSIC website, you may notice an unfamiliar charge on the card statement for the payment method you have chosen.
When placing an order, LAVA MUSIC will contact the cardholders issuing bank, to request an authorization code to validate the payment method. Your bank will subsequently reserve the funds until the transaction proceeds or the authorization expires, but this is not deemed as an actual “charge”.
This is called an “authorization hold” which is removed by your payment provider after a short time, which varies from bank to bank.
Once this hold is removed, please note - this does not mean that the order has been cancelled.

If your payment method/details are not updated within 7 days, your order will be cancelled by LAVA MUSIC.
