From this point forward, ServiceReef will no longer authorize the full application fee on the credit card when the trip participant first applies. Instead, only $1 will be authorized at the time of application. If the participant is accepted on the trip, the admin will still get the pop-up allowing the admin to charge the full application fee or skip the application fee (e.g. for trip leaders, etc.). At that time, the user will no longer see the $1 pending transaction and will see the full amount of the application fee on their bank statement. Additionally, ServiceReef is introducing the ability for admins to have a choice when declining an applicant for a trip. Now, trip administrators will have an option to still charge the application fee when declining an application (e.g. for non-refundable application fee situations).
