A chargeback is a forced transaction reversal initiated by an issuing bank when a cardholder asks their bank to reverse a payment they made to you for goods or services.

A refund occurs when a transaction is cancelled and the amount paid is returned to the cardholder. A refund can be initiated by a cardholder or a business, in accordance with the business’s return policies and other applicable regulations.

These are the administrative costs accrued when bank acquirers and Xsolla defend you in a chargeback dispute. These chargeback fees are automatically deducted from your Xsolla Publisher Account.

Yes. Please send us a signed and dated official bank change notification letter on company letterhead. If the new bank account belongs to a different company, then you’ll need to contact your Account Manager.

Yes. In June 2018, the US Supreme Court established the “economic presence” standard. This decision allows states to tax not just sales by businesses with a physical presence in the state, but also remote sales, such as digital copies of video games. Now economic activity in a state – called economic nexus, based entirely on sales revenue, transaction volume, or a combination of both – can trigger a sales tax collection obligation.

Because the US Supreme Court provided little guidance on what constitutes economic nexus, states have begun to establish laws based on their interpretation of the decision.
