Why Did Republic Wireless Charge My Credit Card $1?


  • Republic Wireless account 
  • Republic Refund (2.0) Plan
  • Credit Card


We have recently updated our billing system that processes our invoice payments. This new system may use preauthorization for an account on a Republic Refund plan. 

  • The system charges the preauthorization fee of $1 in order to verify that the entirety of the funds owed is available on your card, prior to billing you the full price for your service.

  • This fee will be reversed/refunded when the account's regular service invoice is paid (Republic Wireless is not adding any extra fees to your bill).

Additional Notes

This preauthorization process is automatic and is not something that our team is able to enable or disable.
