How to Prevent and Control Chargebacks

As a merchant, you have to be fully aware of the variety of reasons why you might receive a chargeback? Also, you need to be familiar with the circumstances which follow and how to cope with them. You need to be extra careful in your transactions because the chargebacks are usually initiated by customers who have inconsistencies in their credit card statements.

Notification by Category 1

Here, the card issuer normally requests a copy of the transactions from the acquirer. Within 10 days, the acquirer has to provide a proof of the delivery of the right product in order to escape from any further legal action. This is the acquirer’s proof that no mistake has been committed on his part and problem in the transaction is due to any other reason. The document can be faxed, emailed, or scanned to the card issuer.

Notification by Category 2

If there is a retrieval request from any of the two card companies which are American Express and Discover then it is essential to respond to it within 5 days of the request. If the merchant fails to respond to the chargeback prevention notifications then it might cause a non-reversible Chargeback to merchant.

Notification by Category 3

In this case, the cardholder contacts the issuer saying that a transaction is made based on fraud. The card issuer identifies the whole situation as a fraudulent chargeback and the dispute is redirected to Ethoca to do the processing and come up with a resolution. In these circumstances, it is better for the merchant to make the refund and stop the transaction of any kind of product.
