How to Resolve a dispute with a Merchant
What to do to best resolve the dispute with the Merchant:
- First, most important thing is to contact the merchant. MasterCard requires this before we can provide assistance.
- Ask the merchant to issue a credit, or multiple credits if they have charged you multiple times.
- Take good notes! You should notate the following:
- The name of each person you spoke to and the date.
- What they agreed to do.
- Confirmation and/or cancellation numbers (make sure you ask for them).
- How many days it will take before you receive your credit.
- Also, keep any emails and/or letters to and from the merchant.
- Did you know that if you sign up for a free trial, you must cancel and in some cases return the product before the trial ends to avoid future charges?
- Merchants are required by MasterCard to post the terms of the free trial during the checkout process.
- Be Smart! Make sure you understand the terms and conditions before you give them your card number.
What to do if you have already signed up:
- Contact the merchant to cancel the subscription.
- If you need to return the product they provided, get proof of delivery.
- Remember to ask the merchant for credit and take good notes as referenced above.
