A chargeback costs much more than the penalty levied against your merchant account. While it is easy to see those direct fees sent by a financial institution for each customer dispute, there are in fact several additional ancillary costs associated with chargebacks that further harm your business’s profitability. From shipping expenses to processing fees, there is a complex set of expenses that are not overtly visible or easy to calculate—and those costs have a crucial impact on your bottom line.
In addition, the hidden expenses associated with chargebacks continue to rise in price, as chargebacks are now estimated to be a $125 billion problem. It is considered that for every $100 lost as a chargeback, the actual price tag is $240.
