Purpose

The purpose of this article is to give a better understanding of the default authorization amount and how to change it.

 

Pre-Authorization Amount

LOCKED PICO:
The default pre-authorization amount is $10. This will remain the amount until it is changed during self-provisioning or changed within the Device Summary after provisioning.

NOTE: To best determine the appropriate authorization amount for your market, consider the average transaction amount.

UNLOCKED PICO:
There is no authorization amount on the unlocked PicoCooler.

 

Pre-Authorization Did Not Reverse

The banking institution controls when the authorization amount is returned to the user. If pre-authorization amounts are remaining on a card or account, the user should contact their banking institution.
