Pending card payment

Why is my card payment pending?

The payment will remain on hold until the transaction is either completed (merchant collects the money) or cancelled (the money is returned to you).

If a merchant informs you that they've cancelled a transaction, it may remain pending for up to 16 days but this may vary depending on the merchant. Once fully processed, your money will be released to you.

For how long can transactions remain pending?

To check the maximum time a transaction will take to be completed or reverted:

  1. Select it from your transaction list
  2. Click 'Get help'
  3. Choose 'my transaction is still pending'

This will show you the estimated date that your transaction will be completed. Transactions may automatically resolve before the date shown in-app. Pending payments can't be cancelled by Revolut before the date shown in-app.
