Can I change an order once it is placed?
When do you actually charge someones credit/debit card for an order? (Upon order or upon shipment?)
When you place an order with a credit/debit card on AbbottStore.com, we contact your cards issuing financial institution to confirm that your credit card has a valid number, and has not been reported as lost or stolen. This is communicated via a full authorization for the amount of the purchase.
If you make changes to your order, cancel items, or a multiple-item order ships in more than one shipment, your card may be authorized for each change and funds may be reserved against your account for each authorization. Some financial institutions have been known to hold these authorizations for 7-10 business days.
The actual charge to your card is not processed until the order has shipped from our facility.
I am noticing more than one charge on my account, but I have only placed one order! Why am I seeing multiple charges?
What you are seeing in your account is a result of the financial institution’s policy regarding what they call a Pending Transaction. Even when no charge is actually made, the financial institution will hold the funds as "pending" in anticipation of the expected charge. Different financial institutions have different policies regarding this type of transaction.
The following is a general definition as provided by one such financial institution. Your institution may have a different policy, so we would recommend contacting your personal financial institution for further details.
Credit Card Pending Transactions
A Pending Transaction is an item that has not yet posted to your account, but is pending and therefore held against your available credit. Normally, a pending item converts into a posted transaction, but if a merchant does not complete the transaction it will expire and the temporary funds hold will be removed. Some merchants such as gas stations will only authorize your account for $1.00; however, the transaction will post to your account for the total amount of your purchase. If you see a transaction listed as pending that has already posted to your account, it will no longer have an effect on your available credit, however it will continue to display as a Pending Transaction for 7 days from the transaction date.
What if my credit card was declined?
To protect your security and privacy, your financial institution cannot provide Abbott Nutrition with information about why your payment was declined. Because of this, you most likely will need to contact your financial institution directly to solve most payment issues.
How do I return a product?
You may return most new, unopened items sold and fulfilled by AbbottStore.com within 60 days of delivery for a full refund. We will also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error. Items should be returned in their original product packaging.
