Q: We rented some DVD's from the kiosk and on our debt/credit card statement it has a 20 dollar authorization for each DVD. Will it charge us that much? What does that mean?
A: The way the machine works is when you rent a DVD the machine will get an authorization for the replacement value of the movie and holds the authorization until the movie is returned. Once the movie is returned the machine will close the sale and you will be charged the amount shown on the screen and the authorization hold will be cleared instantly or within a day depending on your credit card company.
