    Hi guys,

    For some reason I thought my credit card was charged for my iPad the day I preordered it but I notice that Apple have taken the money today.

    Can anyone else confirm this?

    If you pay by credit card, Apple will put a provisional transfer on the credit card to check that you can pay for the purchase. They hold that and will only charge at the point of invoice (that happens once the items have been shipped).

    I believe - I've never not used a credit card - if you use a debit card, they can't "reserve" the funds as they can a credit card so have to take the payment right away.

    Curiously enough, when I ordered my iMac 27", I'd had the machine for about 4 days before the money was actually taken.

    My credit card was charged on 23rd and recorded as a transaction on 25th.

    My CC has been charged today too, after I ordered on the 10th.

    I paid by cc on the 10th and until today my balance was zero, but my limit was £629 less than maximum, like the sum was reserved but not taken. Now my balance is £629.
