What Are Fintech Chargebacks

Fintech chargebacks occur when customers dispute transactions or report unauthorized activity within a specified time period after the transaction. This can happen when customers forget about purchases or don’t recognize billing descriptors, leading them to assume fraud and file a dispute.

Why Do They Occur?

Fintech chargebacks can happen for several reasons. One common cause is customer disputes and fraud prevention. Customers may forget about purchases or not recognize billing descriptors, leading them to assume fraud and file a dispute.

They are often extremely costly as well due to the following:

  • Time spent investigating and disputing chargebacks
  • Resources allocated to prevent future chargebacks
  • Loss of revenue from refunded transactions
  • Penalties and fees imposed by your bank
