 4:15 am on Jul 14, 2009 (gmt 0)


Anyone got any experiences on selling subscriptions? i use paypal and alert pay as a payment processor.

Did it happen to anyone of getting high percentage of chargebacks? i wanna know what is the ideal percentage of chargebacks as a merchant.

what is the ideal percentage of chargebacks as a merchant
Zero is ideal but we all have them. There is a $25-30 pop on each charge back so it is wise to not have many. Also a high rate of charge backs will either throw your processing fees sky high or get your merchant account terminated.

Your in a very high fraud area so I would put into place a better way of verifying the card holder before I processed the card reducing your charge back rates.

There really isn't an ideal number other than 0 We try our best to have none but ever now and then again we relax on a small order and get bit. My best guess is 1 out of 800 orders.

thank you bwnbwn for a helpful info. do u have any idea the time length paypal gives for a dispute before it becomes a chargeback?

Sorry I don't use paypal but I assume it is about like anyother processor and can be from 1 month to 3 months on getting a charge back notice.

not in dating sites but less than .1% - been a while since I've checked...but I'm militant about who gets sent an order...paranoid about getting screwed.

got here another concern, anyone knows what could be the impression of having many refunds on your Financial Statement when applying another merchant? can u get low chances of approval if high refund on your FS because of returning fraudulent payments?
