- I've received a $1 charge from Unity which was immediately refunded.
- I've added a new card to my Unity account and Unity has unexpectedly charged me $1.
- I was charged $1 when I updated my payment method.
You may have needed to add a new card to your Unity ID to pay for your subscription.
Since subscriptions are a recurring payment, we need to make sure that your card is legitimate and your bank allows us to charge your card monthly.
To do that, we send a $1 charge request to your bank to verify your identity and validate your credit card.
This isn't an actual charge. This is just an "authorization" which can show as refunded or more commonly as "reversed" on your bank statement.
Please note: some banks can take up to 72 hours to reverse this verification charge on your card.
For information on how to update your billing details see the article 'How do I add both the 'Bill To' and 'Ship To' details to my Unity Organization?'
