If you’ve ordered a new Nexus 5X or 6P from the Google Store, it’s time to keep your eyes on your credit card. A number of users (including me) are reporting that they have seen un-cleared funds disappearing from credit cards over the last 24 hours.
A quick phone call to the bank confirmed that the funds (as though there was any doubt when the amount matches perfectly) are indeed reserved for payment to Play Store – Google Play (which is the merchant name for the Google Store).
This is great news for anyone who was quick enough to get in on the first allocation of devices on the Google Store; delivery times may vary but keep your eyes on your credit card statement as it is a good indicator that your new toy will be on its way to you very soon.
If you’ve got a Nexus on order, has your payment gone through yet?
