    You might want to call them. I've purchased quite a bit from Apple, and never have I been charged (not just an authorization, but actually charged) before something has shipped.

    Exactly. It's frequently misunderstood by people that the initial authorization is NOT a charge. :rolleyes: If you pay with a credit card or even debit card with Visa or Mastercard logo, they will authorize and hold the funds initially, and then it will fall off (generally 2-3 days depending on your financial institution). Then you will get another authorization + charge prior to the actual shipping. USUALLY in my experiences the item is prepared for shipping within 24-48 hours after the second "hit" to my card by Apple. This time though, seems it's taking a bit longer, sadly.

    So many people don't get how their credit and debit cards work. :p

    Unless the transaction has actually cleared (It actually shows up on your statement as it being by Apple) Then it's not actually charged.
