Authorizations generate a pending transaction on the card holder's account. They generally expire within 1-10 business days but may appear on their account much longer, depending on the card issuing bank's specifications.IMPORTANT: Any authorizations over 10 days old are considered expired and will need to be re-authorized to ensure proper funding.
