    A merchant portal is the website where a profile owner or co-workers can see all payments, settings and analytics and perform various account functions including setting up invoices, creating payment buttons, cancelling payments, exporting reports, customising payment page designs and much more. The merchant portal can be found here:  https://portal.fondy.eu/mportal/

  • 14. What happens when a payment is made by card which is not confirmed by the cardholder?
     

    If a customer receives a good or service but their bank then issues a request for money to be returned (a chargeback), Fondy takes responsibility for all work relating to financial claims from the issuing bank and the client, with no loss of revenue to the merchant.

    How this works: Transaction security is guaranteed by the Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode standards whilst our monitoring team investigates the financial claims upon which the merchant provided services to the client.
