If you are selling online, avoiding and reducing the number of customer chargebacks received to your merchant account is of paramount importance. Here are 5 tips you can do:

  1. Merchant Identification: Ensure that when the customer receives their statement your name and description are clearly indicated so the user knows who has charged them.
  2. Order Confirmation: Display order confirmation details on the web page immediately following a successful order and generate a confirmation email at the same time. Encourage users to print a copy and/or Save as a PDF, a copy of the email.
  3. Avoid Duplicates: Ensure your order process is safeguarded to eliminate duplicate charges to a customer’s card.
  4. Display Return Policies: On the order confirmation screen and email, make sure that you have your cancellation and/or return policies displayed.
  5. Be Prompt: Make sure you ship the product when indicated to the customer, use online tracking mechanisms and let customers know if there are any unforeseen delays.
