Does Klarna place a reservation on my card for the full amount of the One-time card?

When you create a One-time card, we authorise your payment card for 25% of the total amount. This ensures that the funds for the first payment are available on your credit or debit card. The first payment won’t be charged until you place an order and the store accepts it. If you change your mind before completing a purchase, just cut up your One-time card in the app. Once you cut up a One-time card or it expires, the pending authorisation will expire in up to 5-7 business days, although the exact timing depends on your financial institution. For information on how you can cut up your One-time card, please locate the question ‘How do I delete a One-time card?’.
