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.
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.
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.

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.
No, you are not required to sign-up for this service. For existing Singtel Dash customers, you will be able to access your Dash Visa Virtual Account when you log-in to Singtel Dash app v4.5.

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. After each payment you will receive a notification including your merchant name and the amount of the transaction to confirm your successful transaction. Please ensure that notifications are allowed for Singtel Dash in your Android OS settings. For more security, customer can disable payWave PINless mode in Dash Visa account settings. When PINless mode is disabled, you need to click on your Visa card to enter your PIN before payment on the payWave terminal.

Some merchants, especially e-commerce merchants such as Paypal, Fave.com, perform a card verification transaction the first time you add your Dash Visa card. In most of the cases, this transaction ($1 or $2 amount) is cancelled few minutes later and the amount is credited back to your account. If not, it will appear as a Visa Card Credit Adjustment in the next 10 working days.
In some cases, after your payment is completed, the merchant may adjust the amount to a higher value, i.e if you added a tip to your receipt or if the shipment fees are higher than expected. The difference between the purchase amount and the adjusted amount will be debited from your Dash balance and will be visible in your Dash Transaction History under Visa Card Debit Adjustment.
When you cancel your transaction or ask for refund, after the merchant process your request, your refund will be visible in your Dash Transaction History under Visa Card Credit Adjustment.

The difference between the purchase amount and the adjusted amount will be refunded to your Dash balance and will be visible in your Dash Transaction History under Visa Card Credit Adjustment.
