What is a Chargeback?

As someone who processes payments online, it is crucial to understand the chargeback process in the event that a chargeback is filed against your business.

Must know:

  • You can dispute a chargeback by submitting documentation that supports your side of the story.

Good to know:

  • The outcome of a chargeback is determined by the consumer's card network (Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, Discover).
