A chargeback is a processed credit card transaction that is reversed (charged back) to a merchant because the customer or customer's bank finds something wrong with the transaction.

There are several reasons a transaction can be reversed:

  • Authorization error: a transaction was allowed even though the authorization was declined

  • Processing error: incorrect calculation on the sales draft, invalid account number, or expired card

  • Customer disputes: the customer denies taking part in the transaction, claims purchased merchandise or services were never received and an attempt was already made to resolve the dispute, mail order merchandise was defective, or a promised credit was never processed

If you get a chargeback:

  • If you're a Bank of America merchant, just follow the steps detailed in your Merchant Guide.

  • If you're not a Bank of America merchant, follow the procedures your processor gave you when you signed up. If you are not able to resolve it to your satisfaction, consider switching to Merchant Card Processing from Bank of America. We provide detailed information on chargebacks, tips on how to avoid them, and instructions on how to handle all common Visa and MasterCard chargebacks.
