Payments made via Judopay may be prefaced by ‘APL’, ‘APL/’ or ‘APL*/’ on your bank statements. APL stands for Alternative Payments Limited.
The text after ‘/’ will be the trading name of the business you’ve made the purchase from. For example, Mike’s Café might appear on your statement as ‘APL/MikesCafe.’
If you’re viewing your payments in your Apple Pay sleeve, the charges on your statement will be prefaced by ‘/’ only, so Mike’s Café appears as /MikesCafe.
If you don’t recognise the charge on your statement or require further information, you can contact our customer service team at 0203 503 0600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is not a charge and it will be removed from your bank statement. Depending on the financial institution, this will take anywhere between minutes and few weeks.
This amount corresponds to a pre-authorisation. These are reserved funds that are put on hold by your card issuer, and they are performed to attempt to confirm the card information entered is valid and the bank will allow your transaction. The usual amount is £1.01, but it may vary depending on the business requirements.
Sometimes when you are registering your card in an app or website, you will see the same pre-authorisation. In this case, this is referred to as card verification.
If you have further questions about how your bank handles pre-authorisaions. we advise you to contact them directly.

In general, a token is an object that represents something else. We have multiple types and use cases of tokens we use in our documentation as described below:
customerTokens: A customerToken is a unique encrypted representation of the customers details.
cardTokens: A cardToken is a secure encrypted representation of the customers card details. A customer can have more than one cardToken associated with it.
API Tokens: judo’s API links and authenticates your app and our database with a system of tokens and secrets. Each token and secret is the unique identifier for your account within the API. There are sandbox tokens for the testing environment and Live tokens for when your app is ready to go live.
You can find more on API tokens here.
An 'in-app digital' payment is a payment for digital goods like getting orange hair for an angry bird or upgrading an app game from free to paid. In-app payments can only be provided by Apple or Google.
