Turn card chargebacks into good news

Payment card chargebacks are a major cost and sales inhibitor for merchants around the world. Javelin research shows that: 

  • Consumers bypass merchants, going to issuers with fraud-related disputes 76% of the time
  • 63% of customers decreased merchant patronage due to associated chargeback problems
  • Combined issuer liability for payment card chargebacks accounted for more than USD $7B in 2017 – over 60% of total issuer chargeback costs 
  • Chargebacks cost merchants a fortune:
    • Merchants are burdened with two-thirds of total costs related to chargebacks
    • 60% of merchant chargeback costs are in management expenses
    • For every $1 disputed, merchants AND issuers incur USD $1.50 in additional costs
    • More than $19 billion in 2018 alone in lost profits, employee time, company resources, and associated fees and penalties.
