Card transaction dispute and chargeback rights

We can help you to dispute a card transaction, known as a chargeback, where we may reverse all, or part, of the amount of the disputed transaction back to a merchant’s bank in accordance with the applicable card scheme rules.

You should report a disputed card transaction to us as soon as possible so that we may reasonably ask for a chargeback where such a right exists. You may lose your ability to dispute the card transaction if you do not report it within 75 days of the transaction taking place.

When you dispute a card transaction, we will, in relation to the card transaction claim a chargeback right, where one exists, for the most appropriate reason and not accept a refusal of a chargeback by a merchant’s bank unless it is consistent with the relevant card scheme rules.

The card transaction can also include an unauthorised payment debited to the account pursuant to a recurring payment arrangement.

Before you dispute a card transaction

  • Take note of all the card transaction details: transaction date, merchant name, disputed amount, account number, account name and card number.
  • If the payment was processed through PayPal, they will have their own disputes process which should be followed.
  • When you visit a hotel or hire a car, the merchant will normally place a hold on your card as a security deposit, known as a card authorisation. An outstanding card authorisation (which is a pending transaction) will reduce your available credit, but does not affect the balance owing on the card. The available credit on your card account will be reduced by that amount for up to 10 days until the merchant releases the authorisation.

What happens after you have disputed a card transaction

  1. Rabobank will investigate the disputed card transaction by referring the dispute to the merchant’s bank.
  2. The merchant’s bank will then refer the dispute to the merchant. They will either accept the claim or further investigate under the relevant card scheme rules. At all times, Rabobank will keep you, the client, informed of the progress or outcome of the disputed card transaction.
  3. If the merchant’s bank accepts the chargeback, the dollar value, in whole or in part, of a particular transaction, Rabobank will process the disputed card transaction correction.
  4. Otherwise, depending on the outcome, the disputed card transaction may need to be escalated. The process can continue until resolution is complete.
