If a transaction is pending, the merchant may still be processing the transaction. It is normal for the final amount of a pending transaction to change from the amount shown while it is processing.
Merchants like gas stations and hotels often place a temporary hold on your Friday Card, which appear as ‘pending transactions’ in your transaction history. Temporary holds allow the merchant to reserve a portion of your balance to make sure you’ll have enough funds to cover the transaction amount in full once finalized. Merchants often do this to account for unknowns (like gratuity) that may or may not have been captured when the transaction took place.
Pending transactions are shown in your transaction history in the Friday™ app. It usually takes several days for a merchant to finish processing a transaction.
Good to know
You can’t dispute a pending transaction because the transaction details are not yet finalized. You can open a dispute once the merchant has finished processing the transaction.
