What is a credit card authorization?
A credit card authorization allows the renter to possess a rental cell phone and to receive other services from PandaPhone without having to pay a deposit. Upon receipt of a cell phone rental order, PandaPhone processes a $100 authorization on the renter’s credit card which permits the credit card company to set aside a $100 charge against the renter’s credit card for 30 days. The credit card authorization also allows PandaPhone to not charge the renter for services received until the end of the rental period which most renters find beneficial.

Is there a cancellation fee if I cancel my order?
If the rental is cancelled before the phone is shipped, there is a $10 cancellation fee. Once the package is shipped, the renter is responsible for the shipping fee as well as the cancellation fee.
