Is the total cost on my order confirmation the final cost I will pay? The original authorisation amount is a holding amount, the difference between your order and purchased goods, may on occasions be less due to out of stocks or substitutions. The difference between these amounts will be released back into your account within a matter of days. Please be aware that this timeframe is not controlled by Forces Stores, this is dependent on your card issuer. If you have any further queries regarding your payment, please use the contact us section, quoting your Forces Store order number that can be found at the top of you order confirmation.
