Why is there a provisional hold at checkout?

We temporarily authorize your card for the higher of $5 or 10% of the item total. It helps account for charges like item substitutions, final sales tax, and items sold by weight. As soon as your order is complete, we charge your card for exactly what was ordered. Your bank will update the final charge on your statement in 3-7 business days.

Why am I shown an estimated total at checkout?

The prices displayed on our website reflect our current price. Please know that you will be charged the price of the items at the day and time you pick up your order. Taxes aren’t shown at checkout.

How do I order items sold by weight?
