Different underwriters choose to calculate chargeback ratios in different ways. Some will look atHow old an account is, while others will not. We recently had a case where a merchantWho is less than a week oldHad their account closed due to one chargeback. We’ve also seen companiesThat use a launch product type model where there will be months with high volume followed by months with low volume.
