    I have sent multiple emails asking if outstanding authorization will affect my incoming salary from Upwork but no one has replied for days. At the moment, my balance is $0 and below is the last email 6 days ago.

    "The $200+ transaction has been paid back, however the $200+ is still pending. Please note that the transaction in question is an outstanding authorization, meaning the transaction is pending the merchant's authorization and has not yet been charged.Your outstanding authorization will be automatically released back into your account on 01/06/2017. However, if the merchant chooses to charge the transaction before the release date then the funds will not be released back into your account and you may dispute the charge by contacting us."

    I am about to withdraw my pay from Upwork and I'm nervous that it will charge the outstanding authorization. Please advise
