Hey guys, today i used my card for the first time in a Brazilian POS, the problem is: i forgot its a debit card not a credit card so i told the grocery clerk to charge on credit.
When he did, the transaction was confirmed ( i guess) without asking me for a pin code.
The amount was debited from the wallet but the transaction is on Pending Authorizations with terminal description "Pre-Auth Transaction-POS Signature Purchase International" but i don't know if the amount will back to card later

1. the debit card was used on credit function
2. it didn't ask for a pin.
3. it generated a receipt with the right amount .
4. i don't know if it will be refunded

what happened ?
