This is where chargeback protection for merchants comes in.

Gradually, then Suddenly

As illustrated to the right, chargebacks occur when a cardholder disputes a charge to his or her account, and experts estimate that as much as 80% of the number of chargebacks that arise involve fraud. The chargeback process is as follows:

  1. cardholder disputes transaction and contacts credit card issuing bank,
  2. issuing bank returns the transaction to the acquiring bank through the credit card network,
  3. credit card network forwards the chargeback to the acquiring bank,
  4. acquiring bank receives chargeback and resolves the transaction dispute or forwards it to the merchant,
  5. merchant account receives the chargeback and either accepts it or submits documentation to the acquiring bank in its defense,
  6. acquiring bank forwards the defense to the credit card network,
  7. credit card network receives the documents and forwards them to the issuing bank,
  8. issuing bank receives documentation and releases funds to the cardholder’s account,
  9. the cardholder receives funds and/or information resolving the disputed transaction.

With only 14% of cardholders contacting the digital merchant before filing a chargeback, and with payment processors and card networks having an increasingly low tolerance for chargebacks before imposing fines and holding back reserves, allowing chargebacks to grow represents one of the few existential threats for a digital merchant.
