Ok. I needed this kind of on a rush for last night. I thought it was like a live chat that i could talk to u and find out right away about the pricing and timing. It was due last night. I really don’t need it anymore. This was my first time using this website. I saw a pending chagr of $5 which i understand is the downpayment and i accept but there is also one for $33 and we didn’t go ahead with any request. Is it still going to be charged to my card?
