When cardholders use a credit card/debit card on the OPT, their bank will place a hold on the funds in their account for the pre- selected amount by the cardholder. The cardholder cannot use those funds until the bank releases the hold. When you use your credit card/debit card on the OPT, it sends an electronic request to your bank to authorise a sale for the requested amount. Then the exact amount of your purchase is sent to your bank immediately after you have completed the transaction. At that time, your bank should charge your account for the actual amount of the sale and remove the hold. However many banks do not remove the hold immediately. Often, they will leave it on your account for few days.
