WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO REDUCE DISPUTES?
We know how frustrating disputes can be. Below are a few policy updates
that we’ve put in place that have helped reduce disputes.
CHARGEBACK TIMEFRAME REDUCTION
The window to receive a disputes is now limited to
120 days from the Transaction date.**
We’ve limited the number of times a dispute can be raised on the same Transaction to 2, in most cases.
When a Card Member disputes a Transaction they don’t recognize, we’ll provide them with additional details about the Transaction up front, without contacting you.
Now you will have more ways to support your case for various Card-Not-Present Transactions, such as airline charges, digital goods and services,and digital recurring Transactions.
SafeKey enabled Merchants will receive a shift in fraud liability on
Transactions sent through SafeKey.
These are just some of the dispute policy updates we've made. To learn more, download our Disputes Improvements Brochure.
