Partner Programs

For merchants operating in higher risk sectors, dealing with high chargeback costs is an ongoing challenge. High transaction processing costs. Potential watch list penalties. Exceeding chargeback limits. Managing multiple MIDs. The costs can quickly spiral out of control, threatening the viability of many merchant businesses.

If you serve high-risk merchants struggling with lost revenues and excessive chargeback rates, the Powered by Ethoca Partner Program gives you an in-demand Chargeback Alerts solution that will allow you to process more volume and accept more transactions. With Ethoca’s Chargeback Alerts, your high-risk merchants now have access to a global network of card issuing banks. Valuable issuer data, including cardholder confirmed fraud data and advanced chargeback notifications, is now available in real time. That allows merchants to take action by refunding the transaction and avoiding the chargeback entirely.

The result? Merchants stay within chargeback limits and avoid blowing MIDs. That means more processing volume for you and higher-performing merchants who will drive recurring revenue over the long haul.
