'Chargeback' is the term used for debiting a merchant’s bank account with the amount of a transaction that had previously been credited. For example, claiming funds back from a retail store and crediting the funds back to your account. There are a number of different reasons why a transaction will be charged back, but they mainly fall into four categories:
What is the process?
You are required to write a letter of dispute and ensure you include the below information:
We then lodge the claim to be investigated – you should receive advice of our findings within 21 days of your lodging the letter of dispute. If we are unable to complete our investigation within the 21 days we reserve the right, by notifying you in writing, to extend the investigation period by up to a further 24 days.
If the merchant’s bank accepts the dispute, a credit is posted to your account.
If the merchant’s bank does not accept we will continue with further investigation, if this is unsuccessful a Visa chargeback fee may apply (see Fees & Charges).
What happens if you don’t lodge your dispute straight away?
You should make every effort to report a disputed transaction to us in writing within 30 days of the date of the statement of account which itemises the disputed transaction, so that we may reasonably ask for a chargeback where such right exists. A failure to report a disputed transaction and/or provide additional information within this timeframe and in the form we require could affect our ability to claim a chargeback right (if any) under the card scheme rules.

If you withdrew funds from an ATM or transferred funds out of your Visa account that resulted in it falling below its contracted limit, then interest will accrue from the date of the transaction. There is no interest free period on any cash advance transactions.
For purchases, as long as we receive payment of the full outstanding balance as of close of business on the 14th of the month, and it is paid between the 15th and the 28th day of that same month, your credit card should remain interest free.
To change your credit card type or credit limit, please call 13 25 77 or visit your local branch and one of our friendly team will be happy to assist.
