Bright Data maintains high compliance standards based on the principles of deterrence, prevention, and enforcement of malicious activities to ensure that our network is both safe for customers and ethical. It is for this reason that we are requesting that you identify yourself using your preferred payment method. We will perform a per-authorization charge and reward you with an additional $5 bonus for your help and cooperation.
These authorizations happen so Bright Data can make sure the card is valid, and check that you have enough funds in your account to make the purchase.
These are authorization requests and not charges. You don't pay for authorizations.
Authorizations may stay in your account for 1-14 business days depending on your bank. If you still see the pending authorization after 14 business days, contact your bank for more information.
