Our downstream partners have confirmed that the root cause of this issue has been resolved. The issue was introduced by changes required for the October VISA compliance update. This caused some banks' VISA debit charges to show two pending authorizations. While most banks also show a reversal some will not. In either case the funding holds will be released when your bank processes the reversal.
We apologize again for any inconvenience or concern this has caused.

We are actively investigating reports that some users have seen transactions from 10/13 pre-authorized twice. We have determined that the issue does not lie within the Pushpay system but with one of our downstream service partners. We are currently investigating the issue with those partners. We will update as soon as we have more information.
We apologize for the inconvenience and concern created by this situation and are committed to ensuring that this is resolved positively for each affected user.
