Disputes and fraud

Learn what disputes are, how the process works, and how to prevent them from happening.

A dispute (also known as a chargeback, inquiry, or retrieval) occurs when a cardholder questions your payment with their card issuer. An inquiry or retrieval is solely a request for more information about the charge, which may escalate to a chargeback. To process a chargeback, the issuer creates a formal dispute which immediately reverses the payment. The payment amount, along with a separate $15.00 dispute fee (for users in the United States), is then deducted from your account balance.
