Avoid chargebacks

Take precautions to process remote payments securely to avoid chargebacks.

Understanding chargebacks

In short, chargebacks occur when a customer or their bank disputes a card transaction and seeks to recoup the money.

Chargebacks can be relatively complicated processes. So we’ve put together a step by step guide to the chargeback process and guidelines on how to contest different types of chargeback.

Chargebacks include a deadline for response imposed by the payment provider if you wish to dispute the claim so it’s vital to respond to any email we send you within the requested time frame.

Retrieval requests and fraud reports

Chargebacks may be preceded by retrieval requests and fraud reports, in which more information is requested on a suspicious or unrecognised transaction.
