Unfortunately, successful e-commerce stores and digital goods providers often find themselves in disputes with their payment processing companies. Whether these disputes arise over an underpayment, a chargeback, or the mishandling of sales tracking data, payment processing disputes often hinge on the interpretation of the payment processing contract, which can contain onerous and one-sided terms. These terms may include arbitration provisions, liquidated damages clauses, termination penalties, and provisions allowing for the retention of funds by the payment processor in the event of a dispute or chargeback.

We have handled payment processing disputes both in and out of federal court, including in complex and high-stakes litigation.
