If your order contains an item that is sold by weight, we'll need payment authorisation for up to 125% of the projected cost when we charge your credit card before delivery.

As a result, your cart amount will show the estimated amount; while your credit card will reflect the additional authorisation amount. When all your orders are packed, the final cost of these orders will be determined.

After the original authorization, if you change or add to your order, we will get the another authorization for up to 125% of the increased amount.
