    Has anyone been charged in the UK yet? If so, what bank?

    I'm with HSBC and nothing showing yet. :apple:

    Charges can still be done though. I can see my available balance and when something gets charged, by Amazon or whoever, that changes. So far it hasn't for the Apple Watch I ordered.

    ----------

    Well if the mods feel it's duplicating, they can close it. This is to make the charges stand out from the crowd :D:cool:

    I'm with RBS and any credit card charges take 1-2 days (sometimes even 3 days) to show up on my online banking.

    If I call up and speak to someone they can tell me of charges that were taken just 2 minutes ago, but I find the online stuff updates each night, so if its not there in the morning, then it won't change all day. Not really sure why they just can't link the online system to the one they see in the call centres.

    Not sure what other UK banks are like. Seems like the US banks update their credit card stuff instantly.

    Im with Santander - The available balance changes the second a transaction is processed (Like has just happened with my Star Wars Celebration - London 2016 tickets)

    Nothing else has hit yet, but my refresh butting is wearing out !

    With HSBC, I have 2 apps, both have charges like a statement, but also has a live available balance i can see, that includes any charge made as of when I check. I just ordered a funko from Amazon, that has reduced my available balance straight away, so I should notice when Apple take my money.:cool:

    ----------

    Congrats on the Celebration Tix :D

    I'm with Bank of Scotland and can see any new charges as soon as they are made, nothing yet. It will be a few hours before they finish with America and Canada, probably Australia next, then Europe and eventually us.

    It doesn't mean anything that they still haven't charges us, it's just a batch that runs through people, likely based on bank.

    The worrying will start if we wake up tomorrow and other people have been charged from the UK, but you haven't.

    Nothing here on two watches on two accounts with two cards and two addresses.

    If we get delayed until May and the Yanks get theirs on Friday I am going to lose my ****.

    Yea, I'm thinking that since they're coming from a UK warehouse, as long as we're charged by Thursday, it's good odds we get the watches Friday :)

    ----------

    I'm certain that some, if not most, will get theirs Friday. :)

    If I didn't have work. Probably

    ----------

    I'm just hoping that it's because the watches are already in the UK and the warehouse isn't open.

    I'm hoping I'm getting mine before some of the Americans, a lot of their order numbers that are being prepared for shipping are lower than mine. Well... I can live in hope! :rolleyes:

    Likewise with Natwest. If I buy something, I can check and see my new available balance immediately.

    ----------

    I can't remember the last time I pre-ordered something with Paypal but my presumption would be that the disappeared order was just the Paypal equivalent of a pre-charge and they'll charge your account properly the same time as they charge our cards :)

    I ordered so quick that I didn't even know I could! haha. It'll probably have a temporary hold on it, like with the banks, then take the full amount when everyone else gets charged in the UK

    Looks like the tail-end of the 4/24-5/8 ship date is for countries out of U.S./Canada.

    Not necessarily. As others have stated, the US and Canada are larger countries, so much further to ship the Watch, compared to the UK. We could be charged Thursday and still get it Friday.

    That could be, but very strange.

    That's normal.

    PayPal's API will allow you to put an authorisation on hold for up to 29 days (plus a small extension if needed), however, if you're using a debit/credit card as your funding source, this authorisation will be killed when your card issuer removes the authorisation that Paypal placed on your card.

    This action doesn't trigger a cancellation, all it means is that when Apple's systems trigger fulfilment of the payment, paypal will re-charge your card.

    As for the nay-sayers saying that we won't get them on time - it's currently 11pm - neither the banks, nor Apple's offices in Europe, are currently open. Apple aren't going to start placing mass orders on cc's when nobody's in the office in case anything goes wrong.

    Thanks Brian for clearing that up!! So I should expect another Paypal transaction that will be the final charge?

    I agree, why would Apple start charging people now, when everything is closed. Just to be flooded tommorow with calls.
