Guarantees Overview


Signifyd’s financial guarantee protects online retailers in case of chargebacks allowing businesses to increase sales and open new markets while reducing risk.

We will review your order and tell you whether to ship it or not. We back our decisions with chargeback protection (through a 100% financial guarantee) so you can focus on growing your business with zero fraud liability.

We assume liability for the decision, guaranteeing a merchant the revenue from the order regardless of whether or not a chargeback is filed on the order. If a chargeback is filed on a decision we guaranteed, we’ll pay it.

  • Automated – Orders that are submitted for Guarantee in an automated fashion are done so as soon as the case is created

Re-Submission of Guarantees
