A leading credit repair company reduced its Visa dispute volume by 47.41% with dispute management from Chargeback. In the first 30 days alone, the company was able to stop 1,827 Visa disputes from becoming chargebacks. Prior to using Chargeback’s dispute resolution platform and tools, the company was exceeding the acceptable limit for disputes in a period. With Chargeback, the company has moved well below the limit.
Chargeback accomplished this by providing details about the credit repair company including its products, policies and contact information to card issuers when disputes were first initiated by customers. The additional data gives card issuers what they need to deny dispute requests and redirect customers back to the credit repair company to receive a refund.
In the first month, the company had 3,854 Visa disputes initiated against them, representing $295,780. From those, 2,511 prompted a request for additional information which was a 65.15% usage rate by issuers. Equipped with the additional information, the card issuers deflected 1,827 (72.76%) of those Visa disputes, representing $135,254 in revenue and $20,097 in chargeback fees.
Ultimately, in the first 30 days 2,027 Visa disputes were filed against the company — 1,343 that didn’t participate in dispute deflection with Chargeback and 684 that did. In other words, only 52.59% of the total disputes initiated against them were finalized. The result was a staggering 47.41% net reduction in Visa disputes. Additional benefits from deflected disputes include preventing as much as $70,000 in alert fees and $10,000 in labor. The bottom-line, month one net savings estimate is $235,000.
