For more information on chargebacks, please refer to the following URL:

If RBS WorldPay receive an RFI (Request Further Information) or notice of a dispute, they will email the merchants to request information about the purchase and ask for a response within 7 working days from the date you receive an email from the Chargebacks team.

At the same time, the transaction is flagged as RFI disputed on RBS WorldPay transaction page. RBS WorldPay then place the amount of the purchase into a reserve. The reserve is held to ensure funds are available in your account, should the purchase become chargedback. The reserved funds are still held in your RBS WorldPay account and included in your statement total.

When your settlement is calculated, the reserve total is deducted from the amount due to be settled to you. Each time a settlement is calculated, the reserve is cleared and a new reserve total is calculated to account for any changes in disputed items since your previous settlement.

The net amount deducted / or credited from your due settlement for the disputes reserve is calculated as follows:

The amount reserved on the previous settlement, "Old Disputes Reserve" is credited back to you. The "New Disputes Reserve" calculated, is deducted from your due amount.


Net Reserve deducted/credited = Old Disputes Reserve - New Disputes Reserve

There is no charge for disputed transaction but there would be a chargeback administrative fee of GBP 10 or its equivalent in other major currencies per chargeback.
12) How long does it take for an investigation on Disputed transaction?

For all disputed purchases, the card issuing banks are given 60 days from the date the supporting documents are sent to them to review the documents.

Each manual review requires one of the chargeback team discussing the case with RBS WorldPay processing bank to find out whether the card issuer has responded and whether the RFI response from you may remedy a chargeback.
