Every shop has a different limit for the amount of money you can spend on a card in the shop without it being checked first with the issuer. When you buy things which are more than this limit, the sale has to be authorised by the card issuer. This can either be done by telephone or electronically when the card is swiped through the till by the shop assistant. In this way, stolen cards are caught and cardholders are stopped from going over their credit limit. Sometimes to authorise the transaction, the issuer needs to check the cardholder's identity. Some cards, for example Electron (Visa) and Solo (Switch), always require authorisation whatever the amount. Back to the Top
