IntegraPay’s merchant solution reduces chargebacks for fitness club clients

IntegraPay’s merchant solution reduces chargebacks for fitness club clients
November 5, 2013

A fitness industry merchant solution, designed to reduce chargebacks has been launched by leading payment solutions provider IntegraPay.

Brisbane based IntegraPay who has been designing payment solutions for the fitness industry for 15 years came up with the solution in response to fitness industry feedback.

In developing the solution, IntegraPay General Manager David Urry wanted to solve the chargeback issue, whereby cardholders who fail to recognise a charge on their statement can call their bank and have the charge reversed immediately while an investigation takes place. This starts a lengthy process whereby the fitness operator must prove the charge was legitimate.

Urry explains "understandably chargebacks are a huge issue for the industry.

"Creating an efficient payment process is at the heart of the IntegraPay operation. Our systems development team is focused on tailoring products for the fitness industry to help improve profitability.

"We partnered with a leading bank to deliver this best of breed merchant solution."

According to IntegraPay's bank partner, the IntegraPay product achieves the lowest rate of chargebacks in the industry.

The IntegraPay Merchant Solution can be integrated with electronic direct debit registration (EDDR) and supports recurring and realtime payments processing of Visa, MasterCard, Amex and debit cards. An additional feature of this Merchant Solution is its ability to process expired cards where a customers has signed up for recurring payments.
