Monica Eaton-Cardone’s Best Chargeback Management Advise

In her Retail Week commentary, Eaton-Cardone emphasized the two important tasks associated with chargeback management: prevention and representment.

Not only do merchants need to take the necessary steps to avoid chargebacks, they must also dispute illegitimate cases filed as an act of friendly fraud.

To prevent chargebacks, Eaton-Cardone suggests providing excellent customer service, offering extended service hours, and taking advantage of fraud detection technologies.

Eaton-Cardone also pointed to education as a key element in the fight against friendly fraud.

“Education is key in helping retailers understand what to do when payments are returned so they can implement strategies to fight chargeback threats successfully.”
