Q: What types of payment do you accept?
A: Torrid.com accepts Torrid Credit Card, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express and ATM/debit cards with the Visa or MasterCard logo. You may also pay with a Torrid gift card, cashier's check, money order, PayPal or store credit.

Please note: Torrid.com does not accept personal checks, cash or paper gift certificates as payment.

Q: Why does my bank statement show two entries for the same order? Was I charged twice?
A: If you pay for your order with a debit card, your bank statement will show two entries at the same time, a pre-authorization and the final sale. The pre-authorization hold will fall off within a couple days, depending on your bank's policies. This hold allows us to verify that funds are available, allowing us to begin processing your order. Unfortunately, with a debit card, the pre-authorization hold and final charge aren't combined into one single transaction.

Q: How do I check the balance of my gift card?
A: To protect your information, you must call Torrid Customer Service to check your balance. Call 1.866.867.7431, Monday - Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., PST. Internationally, please phone +1.626.709.1188.

Q: Can I use more than one gift card on my purchase?
A: Yes! To pay for an order with up to three Torrid gift cards, simply enter your gift card numbers at checkout. To pay with more than three gift cards, phone a Torrid Customer Service Representative at 1.866.867.7431. Internationally, please phone +1.626.709.1188.

Q: Will I be charged shipping if I only purchase a gift card?
A: No. The website will show a shipping charge for all orders; however, if the order contains only gift cards, and is shipping to a U.S. address, the shipping fee will be removed once the order ships. All gift card orders going to a U.S. address are shipped via FedEx Ground/Home Delivery.

Q: Can I use a Hot Topic gift card?
A: No. Hot Topic gift cards cannot be used to buy Torrid merchandise.

Q: Do I have to pay tax on my purchase?
A: Yes. Sales tax is calculated according to the state and county tax laws where the order is being shipped. The tax shown online is only a quote and may differ slightly from the total charged, usually by no more than a few cents.

Q: What is a "Verbal Authorization" and why do you need one for my order to ship?
A: A brief conversation with a Customer Service Representative is sometimes necessary to verify credit card information. This is known as a "verbal authorization" and it protects cardholders from unauthorized purchases. If you receive an email requesting a verbal authorization, please give us a call at 1.866.867.7431 so we can get your order on its way. Internationally, please phone +1.626.709.1188.

Q: How do I pay by cashier's check or money order?

Please note: We will fill your order and hold the package until we receive payment. Payment must be received within 10 business days or the order will be canceled.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND A CASHIER'S CHECK OR MONEY ORDER WITHOUT FIRST CALLING TO PLACE AN ORDER. We will not be able to process any orders that are not called in prior to receipt of a cashier's check or money order.

Q: If I use a cashier's check or money order, when will my package be shipped?
