    How we manage disputes at Mpurse

    Only the Customer or Mpurse can raise disputes. The merchant can view all disputes raised on their transactions in their Disputes Listing Page. They can also provide updates as well as submit required documents for the dispute via a 3-way messaging facility between Mpurse, the merchant and the customer.

    1. Supporting Documents

    Mpurse may request for a set of supporting documents for cases that need further investigation. These documents could include the Authorization Letter from the customer, Cancellation Policy, etc. Merchants can respond by attaching the required documents with a clarification message using our messaging facility. This can be uploaded from the Dispute Management module.

    2. Dispute Resolution

    Mpurse team can either close the dispute in the merchant's favour or allow chargeback to the customer. The Dispute status can be: 'Open', 'Chargeback', 'Closed' and 'Open and Hold'. After the dispute status has been set to 'Open', or 'Open and Hold', Mpurse can update its status to 'Closed' or 'Chargeback'. If the open dispute is confirmed as chargeback, Mpurse will debit the dispute amount in the customer's favour and set the status as 'Chargeback'. Similarly, if the open dispute is closed in favour of the merchant, Mpurse will update the dispute status as 'Closed'.

    3. Resolution of 'Open and Hold' Cases

    Mpurse designates the status as 'Open and Hold' for disputed cases that need further investigation and sets the amount as well as the end date for resolution. The amount set aside for resolution at this stage cannot be greater than the disputed amount.

    Different types of resolution for 'Open and Hold' cases:

    • When the time limit set for the 'Open and Hold' case is over and the dispute status has not changed, Mpurse will release the amount held against the dispute and close the dispute.
    • After further investigation, when Mpurse changes the status for the 'Open and Hold' case to 'Chargeback', the amount set aside for resolution (the balance amount payable) is treated as the chargeback amount and debited from the merchant's account in favour of the customer.
    • When Mpurse changes the status for the 'Open and Hold' case to 'Closed', the amount set aside for resolution is ruled in the merchant's favour i.e. credited to their account.


    Mpurse has a very stringent mechanism to deal with refunds of failed transactions (transactions charged to customer but not returned to Payment Aggregator and, in turn, to merchant, hence no services are rendered). As per the merchant's line of business, they can opt to configure their account to reverse such transactions or get it updated as a successful transaction post reconciliation and continue to provide services.

    Mpurse take cares of the "Harmonisation of Turn Around Time (TAT) and customer compensation for failed transactions using authorised Payment Systems" as annexed to Circular DPSS.CO.PD No.629/02.01.014/2019-20 dated September 20, 2019 referred under Clause 5.5 of the Guidelines on Regulation of Payment Aggregators and Payment Gateways issued by the Reserve Bank of India dated March 17, 2020 amended from time to time, while handling refund to the extent of applicability.
