If you are receiving an Amex chargeback, the process is quite simple. The customer submits a claim by claiming that they cancelled an order. In this case, Amex will have data on the original charge and the cancelled order. The merchant must then provide proof that the customer was actually refunded. The merchant must then provide this proof to Amex. The merchant must make sure that the refund is documented and the company has a cancellation policy.
In addition to these charges, a high-risk merchant is subject to a disproportionate number of inquiries and chargebacks. In most cases, a merchant is classified as high-risk if they experience disproportionate numbers of inquiry and chargebacks. A merchant may have a high chargeback rate if it sells products that are considered high-risk by the card network. A merchant may also receive a lot of chargebacks, or have their card declined a significant number of times.
American Express has a process to determine which of the two scenarios is most likely to trigger a chargeback. They will notify merchants of an inquiry by email, post fax, or online. Typically, a merchant will have 20 days to respond to an inquiry or dispute. If they do not respond within this time, they risk receiving a chargeback. When a merchant fails to provide this evidence, the transaction may be rejected and will be subject to a chargeback.
The Amex chargeback process is complex, but most cases are resolved in a month or less. If you are a high-risk merchant, you should know that your chargeback will take longer than average. Nevertheless, it’s important to note that most chargeback cases are resolved in favor of the cardholder, so you should always be prepared for the lengthy process. However, it’s worth noting that the chargeback process is very straightforward and is much more likely to be successful if you follow the guidelines in the Merchant Regulations.
The most common situations that result in an AMEX chargeback are when the customer expects to be given a credit. The cardholder may have ordered a product and received it partially. The merchant has not provided the goods or services that were promised to them. In this case, the cardholder argues that the charge was not fully or partially received. The merchant will have to explain this situation to the cardholder. If the merchant’s statement is not correct, the dispute will be turned down.
Regardless of the reason for the chargeback, you should understand the process involved. In most cases, the customer will be expected to contact the issuing bank to dispute the charge. During the process, he or she will be charged a fee that has no value. It’s not uncommon for the payment to be declined for no apparent reason, but in other cases, it will be reversed. The customer may also dispute a recurring transaction if it has not been delivered or if it was damaged during shipment.
