  • Contact the seller, business, or retailer.

Give the merchant(s) a chance to resolve the problem before commencing the credit card chargeback endeavour. If an item has been damaged in transit or gets lost mid-delivery, inform the seller's customer service of your plight, and give them a chance to right their wrongs.

  • Give them some time.

There are unprofessional business people out there, some of whom won't respond to your customer service requests, won't provide customer care contact details, or keep stalling.

  • Have evidence.

Payment documents also help, so a screenshot of the credit card transaction or a PDF of the invoice will go a long way in swinging the case in your favour.

  • Making the Claim

Once the merchant proves uncooperative or dismissive, you can then make the dispute claim. Contact your Halifax credit card issuers first.
