Hello MassDrop! I just joined the drop and I have an issue. According to the drop, I only get charged at the end of the drop but having just joined, my paypal and my card got charged IMMEDIATELY. Is that normal?

Any time that I have pre-ordered anything from any company and used PayPal, they charge immediately. I think that is just how PayPal has to be.

Paypal is immediate unless you use the delay mechanic which is an opt-in service.

Thanks for that. I'll just confirm with MassDrop and then go from there.

Suopermanni this may help too: https://helpdesk.massdrop.com/hc/en-us/articles/212495798-Was-I-charged-twice-Members-using-PayPal-
According to this, it may just be a placeholder charge?

Yeah, Paypal locks the money immediately. That's just how Paypal works. If you use the credit card checkout directly instead of through Paypal, it'll only be a nominal authorization instead of the full amount right away.
