A chargeback is when the cardholder does not recognize the transaction or disagree with it. Most banks immediately upon receiving a call from cardholder initiate a chargeback procedure without further investigation.
Openpay will cooperate with you to prove that the charge is valid.
What is the process of a chargeback?
- In case there is a chargeback with any card used on your account, Openpay will notify you by a Webhook and / or email.
- Openpay will generate a transaction on your account deducting the amount of the chargeback.
- In order to help you, Openpay will send the information to the bank to prove the charge is valid.
- With the information provided, the bank will decide whether or not to apply the chargeback.

What should I do when I receive a chargeback notification?
You can perform one or more of the following actions:
- Contact your customer to understand the reason for the chargeback. On several occasions the customer may forget about the purchase. You can sometimes resolve the chargeback much faster contacting the customer, if it's a misunderstanding you can have an agreement and the client can call the bank to cancel the chargeback.
- Submit all documentation you have about the charge made to the card to show that is a valid charge. To do this send all information to firstname.lastname@example.org such as logs, emails between you and the client, shipping guides, shipping address, signature at the time of delivery of the product or service, etc.
- Simply do nothing and accept the chargeback.
