When placing an order on the Site, a payment authorisation request will be made, free of charge, to check the availability of funds on the Customer’s PayPal account.

When placing the order on the Site, a payment authorisation will be requested for the amount indicated (at this point the Customer usually receives an SMS or e-mail from the card-issuing bank). This authorisation is not for charging the amount, but merely placing it on hold. Upon delivery of the order to the carrier, shipper or any other subject assigned by LVH to deliver the purchase, the amount due will then be charged. This procedure guarantees that the amount is charged to the credit card only at the time of the actual and conclusive shipment of the Products and for the sole amount relating to the Products actually shipped.
