Getting $2 debited from Google after setting up Adwords with a voucher??

Hi there,

 

I received a $75 Google Adwords voucher to set up. I did, and my voucher came up on the billing screen after putting my bank card details in. The next day I checked my bank card account and $2 has been debited (pending) from Google which confuses me. I thought it would take any charges from my voucher first. I didn't want to put my bank card in anyway, but you don't have a choice. If it takes anymore out of my account I'm going to remove the account. Can you help me please to explain this debit.

Good morning. The $2 on pending debit should not go through- This is only for authorization purposes to check the validity of your billing details.

More Power,
Loraine
