Bank of America Chargeback

Bank of America chargebacks can represent a serious hurdle for merchants who might face chargeback fees on disputed transactions. Disputed transactions may go through the Bank of America claims department, where customers can dispute a charge. Bank of America recommends that customers call the merchant first, before disputing a transaction, but this may not always happen. In the case of a disputed charge, merchants may see a Bank of America dispute debit charge. 

Until a dispute is resolved, the customer, to whom Bank of America is an issuing bank, will see a change in the credit card total due reflecting the dispute. Bank of America will reach out to the merchant via the card brand and acquirer. At that point, a merchant can dispute the legitimacy of a chargeback, but if Bank of America believes it to be a legitimate dispute, the merchant may have funds withdrawn or held from their merchant account and may be responsible for chargeback fees as well. 

In most cases, for merchants, it’s preferable not to deal with a chargeback in the first place. For all parties involved, it can be much simpler for customers and merchants to work out a dispute together before involving an issuing bank. If a cardholder submits a dispute on a charge, and Bank of America determines that the charge is legitimate, customers will have their total due readjusted to reflect the charge, but they likely will not be responsible for any fees or interest associated with the disputed charge. 

However, if the charge is deemed to be illegitimate, merchants can be held responsible for fees and administrative costs associated with the dispute process. These fees will depend on the merchant agreement. In any case, it’s almost always preferable to avoid chargeback disputes before they happen.

Bank of America Dispute Transaction

Bank of America has a very robust customer service system. Customers who need help and are looking for Bank of America credit card customer service will find that it’s available around the clock. Customers can generally reach Bank of America customer service 24/7, so for merchants, chargeback issues can come in around the clock. 

Bank of America recommends that customers with concerns first reach out to the merchant. If they opt not to and to instead call Bank of America customer service, they can do so at virtually any hour of the day. Bank of America, like many other large banks, has a number devoted to customer service specifically. However, the Bank of America customer service number should only be used when the merchant is unwilling to resolve the dispute.

For cardholders, this number is effectively the Bank of America chargeback number, since they encourage customers who believe that there has been unauthorized use of their card to reach out. When cardholders with Bank of America dispute transactions in the case of fraudulent use, it’s the best course of action for them but sometimes, cardholders might dispute a legitimate charge for an invalid reason. These might include buyer’s remorse or forgetting that they paid for something. This is unethical and an illegitimate use of transaction disputement systems, but it does happen. And it can be a waste of time and money for merchants.

As with other banking entities, sellers using PayPal will generally find that many disputes are better handled if customers reach out directly to their merchant. The exception would be in the cases of identity theft and fraud, in which case cardholders may not even be aware that that’s possible or have a way to easily contact the merchant since they won’t have a receipt or familiarity with the merchant.
