What should I do if my transaction does not appear after 30 days?
Transactions can sometimes take longer than 10 business days so we ask that you wait 30 days to notify us of a missing transaction. If the transaction has still not appeared after 30 days please send us the following information to investigate the transaction:
  • Username.
  • Proof of purchase (receipt) that shows the payment card used for the transaction and the transaction date. Receipts will typically show last 4 digits of your card number and this is sufficient.
  • Name as it appears on your linked card.
  • Confirmation the card was successfully linked at the time of the transaction. A screenshot or print out of the “Manage your credit & debit cards” screen is sufficient.

Is there a waiting period between when I register with The FOR Project and when I can make my first eligible transaction?
