    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

    My credit card authorisation charge has dropped off today, so now waiting for the real charge before delivery.

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