Can this card be used at merchants that require a pre-authorization?

For multi-use cards:

Yes, assuming the pre-authorization is for an amount less than the balance of your card.

For single-use card for verified users:

No. We realize you may not know if a merchant is going to do a pre-authorization. 

  • If prior to confirming funds received your purchase is declined or refunded, request for the transaction to be cancelled, and you will receive the funds back in your Airtm account.
  • On the Tuesday that is at least 2 weeks after your card was purchased, any remaining balance >$1 will be sent back to your Airtm account (regardless of whether you made a purchase, had a decline, or had a refund).
