How do I dispute a chargeback?

A response to a chargeback is your opportunity to dispute the cardholder claims by providing supporting documentation and additional details.

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.

Step 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. Gather all of your supporting documentation (signed agreement, signed invoices, purchase orders, etc).
  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. 

Step 2) Submit your response to the Chargeback Department. 

  1. Login to your PayJunction account, click on Reports, then click on Chargebacks.
  2. On the following screen, click on the Respond button.
