I will go back but I’m wondering what just happened. I just got £20 worth of shopping and then spent £5 in the pharmacy. Both transactions said authorised and I got receipt for both but the money is still showing in my account and they are not pending transactions. There is no trace of it. What could of happened?

It sometimes takes a little while to show

Systems may be a little slow and it will show later.

Depends if the system reserves the money straight away or not. It will come out in the next few days even if not showing as pending

You often can't see pending payments immediately. Check again in an hour or so.

Often happens - some machines don't log transactions immediately, they do it in batches, either at a specific time or when the machine is holding a specific amount. It'll come out.

Some days it can take a few days for things to catch up. I've often had money leave my account 3 or 4 days after I walked away with the goods.

Thanks everyone. I never knew that, hadn’t noticed before.
