I received a fraud chargeback on a Guaranteed order but the package was rerouted. Is it eligible for reimbursement?


Guarantee decisions are made using the information passed from the merchant to Signifyd. When Signifyd guarantees an order, the information contained in the platform is binding.

If order information is altered or a ship-to/delivery address changes from what Signifyd guaranteed, this new information must be added to the notes section of the case and sent for re-review. 

Otherwise, all the information passed must remain the same for the Guarantee to stay in effect. This includes delivery address, billing address, phone number, email, IP address, BIN, etc.

Note that orders may be submitted for Guarantee a total of two times. Click here to learn how to resubmit a Guarantee.


How do I protect myself from package rerouting?


We have seen orders to legitimate delivery addresses being rerouted to a different address after Guarantee. This is a common scheme by fraudsters requesting that the merchandise be shipped to one address then changing it to another while the merchandise is in transit. 

Guarantee decisions are made using the information passed from the merchant to Signifyd. If order information is altered, such as the ship-to/delivery address, from what Signifyd guaranteed, this disqualifies the order from reimbursement should a chargeback occur. 

To protect yourself, make sure that your shipping company only delivers to the original shipping address and provides you with a proof of delivery. Also make sure that package rerouting is disabled on your merchant account.
