NOT_AS_DESCRIBED

The cardholder claims the product or service was provided, but the quality of the deliverable did not align with the expectations of the cardholder based on the description. To challenge this dispute, provide specific and concrete evidence that shows the cardholder is in possession of the product as described or received the service as described and agreed on.

CUSTOMER_REQUESTS_CREDIT

The cardholder claims that the purchase was canceled or returned, but they have not yet received the credit. To challenge this dispute, provide specific and concrete evidence to prove that the cardholder is not due a refund and that they acknowledged your cancellation and/or refund policy.

EMV_LIABILITY_SHIFT

A chip-enabled card was not processed through a compliant chip-card reader (for example, it was swiped instead of dipped into a chip-card reader). You cannot challenge this dispute because the payment did not comply with EMV security requirements. For more information, see What Is EMV?
