Why does my transaction reflect "pending"? Does it mean my transaction did not go through?
This is a normal payment process. When your transaction is performed and approved, your Dash balance will be deducted with the transaction amount and your transaction will show "pending" until the merchant processes and completes the transaction backend. This will usually take 3 to 4 days (maximum 14 days) after your purchase, until it has been processed.
I didn't make any transaction today but my Transaction History shows a new transaction on my Dash account.
In some cases, when the merchant confirms the payment a few days after your transaction, the amount of the transaction can be adjusted to reflect the actual amount. This happens when some items of your total order are not available, and the final amount will be lesser than your amount paid. Your transaction history will show the previous transaction as "Cancelled" and a new transaction will be shown with the final amount. The difference will be debited or credited automatically to your Dash balance.
Why is the transaction amount deducted in SGD from my balance different from the SGD amount displayed on merchant website?
Visa applies a processing fee for foreign or overseas transactions. Hence, an additional processing fee will be included and deducted in SGD from your Dash balance.
Why does the transaction amount change a few days after my transaction is made?
In some cases, when the merchant confirms the payment a few days after your transaction, the amount of the transaction can be adjusted to reflect the actual amount. This happens when some items of your total order are not available, and the final amount will be lesser than your amount paid. Your transaction history will show the previous transaction as "Cancelled" and a new transaction will be shown with the final amount. The difference will be debited or credited automatically to your Dash balance. For overseas payments, the foreign exchange rate provided by Visa may change between the day you made the transaction and the day the merchant completed it. Thus, transactions with foreign currency might be more subject to amount changes.

What are the fees involved for overseas transactions?

The amount in foreign currency will be automatically converted to SGD and deducted from your balance. Please note that additional processing fees apply for transactions made at overseas merchants and will be included in the final amount deducted from Dash balance.
Is there any other added security when I make payments?
To prevent unauthorised transactions when making payments online, a one-time-password (OTP) may be sent to your registered Dash mobile number during an e-commerce transaction. The OTP has to be entered for verification within 3 minutes of its receipt, significantly reducing the risk of fraudulent use of your Dash Visa Virtual Account. Each OTP will expire after 3 minutes and is limited to one time use.
