A credit card dispute refers to a situation where a cardholder questions or challenges a specific charge or transaction made on their credit card statement. It can arise due to various reasons, such as an unauthorized transaction, billing errors, damaged or defective goods or services, non-delivery of products, or dissatisfaction with the quality of goods or services received.


When a credit card dispute occurs, the cardholder contacts their credit card issuer to initiate a dispute resolution process. The credit card issuer then investigates the claim by gathering relevant information and evidence from the cardholder and merchant involved. If the issuer determines that the dispute is valid, they may temporarily remove the disputed amount from the cardholder's account while investigating, and possibly issue a provisional credit. The issuer communicates with the merchant to resolve the dispute, and based on the findings, either reverses the charge permanently or reinstates it, notifying the cardholder of the decision.


Credit card disputes offer cardholders a level of protection and assurance against fraudulent or erroneous charges, helping them to avoid financial loss and maintain confidence in their credit card provider.

A credit card dispute refers to a process where a credit cardholder questions or disputes a charge or transaction on their credit card statement with the intention of seeking a resolution. This typically occurs when the cardholder believes that a charge is incorrect, fraudulent, or unauthorized, or when there is a problem with a product or service purchased using the credit card. The cardholder may contact their credit card issuer to initiate the dispute process, and the issuer will investigate the claim and evaluate the evidence provided by the cardholder and the merchant before resolving the dispute.
