Why are Amazon's charging practices so wacky(charged then reversed then charged)

I noticed this last year as well when checking my online banking and it's the same thing again. I've purchased many items from amazon and the charges keep getting reversed then re added with different amounts.

Are they doing an initial charge when you make the purchase then refunding and recharging only the items as the ship??

Usually they do preauthorizations when you place the order and then charge the full amount when they ship like any other online merchant.
