In simple words, chargeback is a dispute against a particular transaction raised by the cardholder (end-user), and reported to their card issuing bank. A chargeback is a provision by banks and card networks such as Visa & MasterCard to protect buyers from unauthorized or fraudulent payments. Once the cardholder files a complaint, the bank reports the same to KwikPaisa by JANGRAs and initiates an investigative procedure.
