Are there systems or safeguards in place to prevent charges with no corresponding order?

    Are there systems or safeguards in place to prevent charges with no corresponding order?

    I tried placing an online order while using a gift card and received an error message.

    I then tried to place the order again and noticed all the money missing off the gift card. I was told by the company that if I had not called in and informed then, they would have taken my money and never returned it. However they acted like it was the standard way that all businesses work however I have never had this issue with any other company and think the company are either doing this by design or extremely reckless system are allowing for this.

    My question is do most payment processing system design not to charge a giftcard/credit card,etc.. unless an order has actually taken place?

    Thanks.
