Midigator’s win rate is 65-80%. To put those numbers in perspective, in-house efforts usually achieve a 20-40% win rate. Rates for other third-party vendors vary widely, ranging from about 20-65%.

But win rates alone don’t paint the full picture. There are other KPIs to take into consideration too—like fight rates and ROI.

For example, a high win rate coupled with a low fight rate make results seem more profitable than they are—less total dollars are won back. And expensive, error-prone, manual processes might win a sufficient amount of cases, but they completely negate ROI.

So, a more comprehensive overview of our success would be that Midigator fights 85-90% of all chargebacks and wins 65-80%. Clients regularly report anywhere from an 800% to 1,500% increase in ROI.

When it comes to fighting chargebacks, Midigator’s goal is to generate as much ROI as possible.

The strategy is three-fold.

First, automation is used to increase efficiency and eliminate error-prone, time-consuming processes. This cuts costs.

Second, the technology knows what should and shouldn’t be fought. This prevents wasting time and money on cases that cannot be won. It also means you won’t spend more than you are able to recover.  

Third, the technology creates customized dispute responses. These have the best possible chance of winning which recovers the maximum amount of revenue.

Fighting 100% of your chargebacks would be irresponsible and detrimental to your ROI. There are a couple reasons why Midigator might not fight a chargeback.

  • The cost associated with the dispute response is more than the amount of revenue that would be recovered.
  • The processor has explicitly explained that chargebacks with a given reason code are not disputable.
  • You don’t have the compelling evidence required to dispute the given chargeback reason code.
  • The issuer has submitted a pre-arbitration chargeback and the costs associated with a second dispute response exceed potential ROI.

Midigator’s technology automatically filters for these conditions and determines whether to challenge the chargeback based on processor, reason code, and economic guidelines.

This philosophy ensures maximum ROI.
