Order Entry Process

As of June 1, 2022, Viasat’s order entry process implements a $60 pre-authorization against a customer’s credit or debit card used during order entry.  This only applies to customers that receive a $0 upfront fee. If a customer receives an upfront fee over $0, no pre-authorization charge will apply. Viasat will pre-authorize the customer’s credit or debit card for $60.00 to confirm a valid payment method. Viasat pre-authorization is immediately reversed.  However, some card-issuing banks may hold the pre-authorized funds for up to approximately three days based on bank policies. If the credit or debit card fails the pre-authorization, the customer will need to provide a different payment method.  A pre-authorization will be also done on the new credit or debit card.
