3) How to Respond to Chargebacks

Do not issue a refund
Please note that issuing a refund after a chargeback has been debited against your account is not an acceptable response. We advise you not to do so as that results in your account being debited twice for the transaction.

1) Gather the following information before responding:

  1. Case Number (this is found on the letter you received, or on the Chargebacks page in PayJunction)
  2. Case Amount (the amount for this chargeback)
  3. Email Address (your email address)
  4. Supporting documentation
    1. Create 1 file that includes all of your supporting documentation (signed agreement, signed invoices, purchase orders, etc).
    2. 10 MB (megabytes) max.
    3. PDF, JPG or TIF file format.
  5. Details for the transaction
    1. We recommend typing up a one paragraph summary that remains brief and concise but still communicates all the important and relevant aspects of the situation. You’ll have the opportunity to provide these details in the “Merchant Comments” section during the chargeback response process.

2) Submit your response via the Merlink Response system. 

  1. Once you have gathered the above information, click on the Respond button on the top-right corner of the Chargebacks screen in PayJunction. Optionally, you can go directly to this website instead of clicking the Respond button: https://merlinkresponse.com/respond-button.png
  2. Enter the Case Number, Case Amount, Email Address on the form. Then, click the Upload File button.

  4. In the Merchant Comments section, enter the details for this transaction.
  5. Click the Upload button.
