Why was my card charged 2p?

Upon linking a card to your account, you might notice a very small pre-authorisation charge on your bank statement (£0.02). This charge is taken by our payment provider to test that the card is able to make payments but the money never actually leaves your account and is released 5 business days after the charge is made. 

Please note that the pre-authorisation charge will be taken whenever a new card is linked.
