IMPORTANT: Chargebacks are decided by the card issuing bank and are determined by the rules and regulations set by the card payment brand. Disputing a chargeback does not guarantee a decision in your favor.


**Please note, in a represented chargeback, it can take up to 120 days from the date of the chargeback for the bank to make a final determination.**


Once a chargeback has been initiated on a transaction, you cannot refund it. If you agree that the funds need to be returned to the customer, you will need to accept the chargeback.

 

Accepting The Dispute


If you find that you are in agreement with a chargeback, for example, a transaction that should have been refunded, you can easily accept the dispute by clicking the Accept Dispute button within the chargeback details for a particular transaction:
