CBOSS, Inc. is pleased to announce the completion of the latest initiative in our continuing efforts to offer robust, scalable, and secure payment systems. To support our customers more efficiently and securely we have partnered with Iron Mountain Data Centers, for data center management and colocation services.

With this partnership, CBOSS has migrated all production systems to IMDC datacenters, offering numerous benefits for CBOSS and its customers:

 

Tier III Infrastructure

All production CBOSS systems are now operating on IMDC’s Uptime Institute Tier III rated infrastructure. This means everything from power, to cooling, to network uplinks are all fully redundant, and concurrently maintainable. All vital distribution paths are separated, eliminating single points of failure from CBOSS systems, to the outside world. Combined with CBOSS’ fully redundant network architecture, this means the highest possible availability and the least possible downtime for customers dependent on CBOSS services.

Comprehensive Chargeback Management Guide - Part 7

Part 7: Compelling Evidence for Chargeback Responses

Now that you have learned about the chargeback process in Part 6, the final step is to learn what kind of evidence you should be sending to fight a chargeback to put together a compelling case.

 

In every Chargeback Management Guide from the card networks, it is stated that “compelling evidence” must be supplied at various points in the process. Just like how every network’s chargeback process is slightly different, every network has slightly different criteria for what makes evidence compelling enough to give a favorable ruling to a merchant. One thing common across all networks is that compelling evidence must include some form of documentation i.e. receipt, transaction history, contract, etc. It is not enough to simply state “Jimmy was a repeat customer.” You, as the merchant, must provide Jimmy’s transaction history from your records for anyone to accept this evidence. Make sure to consult the card network’s Chargeback Management Guidelines when you receive a chargeback, so you can verify what evidence is required and how it needs presented. Below are links to the major card networks’ Chargeback Management Guidelines.

Comprehensive Chargeback Management Guide - Part 6

Part 6: Visa Claims Resolution

The first 5 posts outlined everything your organization needs to know about chargebacks and how to prevent them, but what happens when your organization gets one anyway?  The chargeback dispute process, called “Claims Resolution” by Visa and “Chargeback Re-Presentment” by the other big networks can be a long and arduous process that often ends in higher fees and a judgement in favor of the customer.  If you know the system, how to properly respond to chargebacks, and most importantly when to cut your losses, you can successfully mitigate their impact on your bottom line.  

 In an effort to increase automation and effectiveness, and decrease the time it takes to process a chargeback and the amount of fraudulent chargebacks, Visa recently overhauled their entire chargeback process. This post will outline how Visa Claims Resolution (VCR) works, and how your organization can effectively use it to reduce your chargeback costs.

Part 2: Why Your Organization Should Be Concerned

In Part 1 (What is a Chargeback?) of this blog series, you had learned what chargebacks were and some general facts about them. If you are thinking “That was good information, but why should I be so concerned about a couple of forced refunds?”, then read carefully. Chargebacks cost a lot more than just lost revenue. Additional fees, damaged reputation, and the possibility of your merchant contract being suspended/terminated are some of the additional risks outlined below.

Part 1: What is a Chargeback?

This is the first part of a multi-part blog series focusing on chargebacks. As the other parts are published, links to them will be placed below.

What is a Chargeback?

A chargeback is the result of a customer disputing a charge on their credit/debit card. They can be initiated for a variety of reasons, but all lead to the same result; money paid to your organization is removed from your bank account and returned to the customer without your consent. The chargeback process is designed to increase customer confidence, but, unfortunately for business owners, has become a tool for part-time fraudsters to get free stuff. The fraudulent use of chargebacks is often called “chargeback fraud,” “friendly fraud,” or “online shoplifting.”
