      Hi Val,

      Thank you for reaching out to Finder.

      Generally, when a charge is taken from your card it is done as a straight charge. You may want to contact your bank to see about getting a different option prior to making the charge on to the card. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie
