Chargebacks are a significant challenge in eCommerce, leading to financial losses and potential harm to a business’s standing with payment processors. Successfully navigating chargeback disputes requires a deep understanding of the process and a strategic approach to evidence collection and presentation. Here, we outline effective strategies for winning chargeback disputes, enhanced by the innovative capabilities of FUGU.


Key Strategies for Chargeback Dispute Success

Learn the Basics of Chargebacks: Understanding the fundamentals of how chargebacks work is crucial. This includes knowing the reasons behind chargebacks and the impact they have on your business.

Identify and Understand Reason Codes: Each chargeback comes with a reason code that provides insight into the customer’s dispute reason. Recognizing these codes is essential for preparing a targeted response.

Collect Compelling Evidence: The evidence required to dispute a chargeback effectively includes documentation of the transaction, proof of delivery or service, and any customer communications. This evidence is critical in proving the legitimacy of the transaction.

Respond Promptly: Timeliness is key in chargeback disputes. Responding within the required timeframes set by payment processors is essential to maintain the right to dispute the chargeback.

Analyze Behavior Patterns: Identifying patterns in chargeback disputes can help detect fraudulent activities and prevent future chargebacks.

Craft Compelling Rebuttal Letters: A well-written rebuttal letter that clearly presents the evidence and outlines the case can significantly impact the outcome of the dispute.

Prioritize Customer Service: Excellent customer service can prevent chargebacks by resolving issues before they escalate to a dispute. This includes clear communication and an easy-to-understand return policy.
