As an e-commerce merchant, you know that chargebacks are just another part of the business. Odds are, every online retailer is going to experience a few chargebacks. In moderation, chargebacks are normal—even expected. But too many can ruin your credit card processing capabilities and even cost you your merchant account. This is why chargeback prevention is of the utmost importance.

Chargeback fraud is becoming more popular in the e-commerce world, with many fraudsters exploiting the chargeback process to get away with free goods or extra cash. Merchants should be especially vigilant toward chargeback fraud, as it can make online payment processing solutions harder to find.
