Payment for backorders or delayed products is generally the same as for pre-ordered items. If you are using a credit card, the amount will be authorized but not charged until the item ships. If you are paying by debit card, your bank reserves the funds and pays that amount to Barnes & Noble when we ship the item(s).
If there is an extended period of time (a week or more) between the order date and the ship date, the initial bank authorization will fall off eventually. Barnes & Noble submits for re-authorization from the bank before shipping, to ensure the funds are still available. If funds are not available, the order will fall into a failed status, and eventually cancel if no action is taken.
Please note: Barnes & Noble does not reimburse any bank, credit card, or debit card overdraft charges.
