Why Does My Payment Need To Be Verified?

Because your order has been held for a standard anti-fraud check by Twinkledeals.

"But I already gave you my payment details - why do you need anything more?"
Sometimes, unfortunately, thieves gain access to people's credit card details or Paypal accounts.
The thieves often try to use the stolen details to pay for products bought online, when you pay us your credit card or bank card payment is processed by a third party (ie Paypal, GC or other payment companies )and not by Twikledeals directly. Therefore we have not seen any of your financial details or your credit card details.
This is why we have to confirm whether the payment was authorized by the payment account holder or not. To protect everyone against a small number of fraudsters, we have to complete these ID verifications with customers randomly.
