What is the authorization charge of €1 for?

We initiate what is called an authorization charge of €1, when you register a new credit card. This is a dummy transaction to check the validity of the card. While it has an amount, this transaction never ends up by a charge. Some banks will show you a debit of €1 followed by a credit of the same amount at a later time. Some other banks will never show the transaction at all.
