How to Get a JPay Chargeback the Easy Way

Those who reside in our nation's corrections systems are often the beneficiaries of a service called JPay that allows family members, friends, or random strangers to send money to them or other inmates. For many who are incarcerated, and those on parole, JPay has become a leading service to take on these transactions in a convenient way.

Once in a while, sending money to an inmate requires a chargeback due to various circumstances. Maybe the sender changed their mind, or the money transfer was made with a stolen credit card. Going about fixing this isn't always easy after sending money to someone in a corrections facility.

We make any refunds here easier using our Chargebacks service at .

It's possible to receive a chargeback on your card within days. Only if a dispute with JPay occurs would there ever be a delay. Regardless, the refund is completed if they have 't filed a dispute within 45 days.

JPay 's Complete Refund Policy

Take a look at these procedures JPay expects if you plan to get a chargeback or deal with a financial dispute. It can get complicated to deal with, even though their customer service is reportedly good:

Time constraintYou need to report a refund within 60 days of when you send money to an inmate.
Small claims courtAny financial dispute with the company requires submittal in a small claims court within a year after the transaction occurred.
Response timeYou can also write a letter to JPay detailing your financial dispute. JPay has a right to wait up to 30 days to respond.

How Long Will It Take to Receive the Refund?

Most refunds from JPay are taken care of right away when you adhere to their Terms of Use. Most companies like them do chargebacks quickly. The thing that takes the longest is dealing with customer service.

Like all customer service lines, it usually involves having to wait a long time. When your time is valuable, the last thing you want is to wait for up to 30 minutes to talk to someone about a chargeback.

JPay also has a standard email contact address. Going this route can take even longer.

Issues You Might Encounter When Requesting a Refund

Since JPay is so adamant about transactions being final, it's not always easy to get them to refund your money right away. You have to prove to them it was done through faulty means.

Just changing your mind about sending money to an inmate may not always generate an immediate refund from them. It's something we can help move faster with our DoNotPay app.

How Can You Check the Status of Your Refund Request?

The only way JPay appears to provide any details about refunds is if you call their customer service line. Again, that can lead to long wait times, only prolonging the process.
