Mastercard and Salesforce Collaborate to Improve Transaction Dispute Handling

by May 20, 2024

Mastercard and Salesforce have announced a new integration aimed at enhancing the transaction dispute process.

This collaboration seeks to provide consumers with a safer and more efficient shopping experience by streamlining the resolution of transaction disputes and reducing associated costs.

The new integration will combine Salesforce’s Financial Services Cloud (FSC) with Mastercard’s dispute resolution services, including Ethoca Alerts and Ethoca Consumer Clarity.

This collaboration will allow for a more efficient and transparent dispute management process, providing financial institutions with real-time notifications and detailed transaction insights.

By incorporating these services into FSC, bank agents and team members will have comprehensive visibility over disputes from start to finish, ultimately improving the customer experience.

Transaction disputes and chargebacks, where consumers request refunds for unrecognised transactions, pose a significant challenge to the payments industry.

Estimates suggest that by 2026, there could be 337 million chargebacks annually, a 42% increase from 2023 levels.

The integration is available immediately for Salesforce FSC customers.

“Technology is helping to speed up and improve the checkout experience, especially when shopping online. However, every disputed transaction can create stress for the consumer as well as resource pressures and increased costs for merchants and financial institutions.

 

Through this partnership, we are adding to the tools that make it easier and faster for banks and merchants to resolve disputes, further enhancing trust in the ways they choose to pay.”
