Please allow 2-3 days for your order status to post. If you are a registered user, you can also check your order status using the "My Account" link on the home page.
Q: What payment methods can I use?
A: You may pay for your order with a VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit card or debit card, with your PayPal or Visa Checkout account, or for U.S. Customers only, a JOANN Gift Card. Currently, we are unable to accept payment by check, or payment by VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express branded gift cards. At this time, you may only use one credit card per order. joann.com® will add an authorization for funds to your payment method for the total amount or your purchase. Once your order ships, the charge will appear on your payment method. There may be multiple charges if your order is sent in many different shipments. All joann.com® orders prices will be displayed and charged in U.S Dollars, USD. For international customers, additional credit card fees may apply; your credit card company may charge a fee for converting payment into USD. Please note that joann.com® does not offer a layaway plan.
Q: Why are there multiple authorizations on my credit card?
A: You may see multiple authorizations on your account if you attempted to process an online order multiple times by hitting the "submit" button. Even if your order did not process, you may still see an authorization on your account. An authorization is a pending charge or hold on a payment account and is not a true charge. The authorization on your credit card or PayPal account allows joann.com to make sure the account is valid and has the necessary funds available to process your order. Your payment method is not charged until we ship your order. The release of an authorization may also appear as a refund on a credit card statement, or the authorization may be deleted from the account entirely. The void may take 7 business days (or longer, depending on your bank) to appear.
