Who is Chargebacks911?

They have approximately 350 employees worldwide and currently manage over 200mm transactions worldwide each month. Chargebacks911 is a division of Global Risk Technologies and was developed specifically for merchants to offer immediate aid through proprietary technology and provide the necessary function that gives merchants the freedom to focus on their core competency and optimize their in-house skill set.

Chargebacks911 works with their client base to help them keep dispute rates down and retain their ability to accept credit cards.


Chargebacks911 grew organically out of the co-founder’s experiences with fraud in previous online businesses. Fraudulent chargebacks for card-not-present transactions were chipping away at profitability. Chargebacks911 was founded to address this problem.

Their purpose is to help merchants create sustainable business practices, especially for those businesses most susceptible to chargebacks.

Chargeback fraud involves a complex relationship between the merchant, the merchant’s acquiring bank, the credit card issuing bank, the consumer, and the dispute management company such as Chargebacks911. How could Chargebacks911 become a major voice in the industry so that it not only gains clients but be a force for change in the credit card industry?
