PXP Financial, the company providing global acquiring, payment, fraud and data analytics services, announced its partnership with DisputeHelp to offer an end-to-end dispute management platform across all payment systems for their merchant portfolio. The announcement comes as the Mastercard Acquirer Collaboration mandate is about to come into effect.

Mastercard Collaboration is an initiative to resolve cardholder disputes early in the chargeback process. The idea is that by opening a new line of communication between issuers, acquirers and merchants, disputes can be handled quickly and inexpensively.

From September 27, 2022, the mandate will send alerts for all disputes on the Mastercard network. Dispute alerts, which are not currently routed to merchants through Ethoca, will be sent by Mastercom to the merchant’s acquiring bank. Acquirers, such as PXP, must then distribute the alerts to their merchants.

Notably, PXP Financial provides a single unified payment platform to accept online, mobile and point-of-sale payments. Powered by in-house acquiring, over 200 alternative payment methods and financial services, PXP processes over €21.5 billion per year through a unified gateway.

a secure and optimized point of sale solution. It creates a seamless and scalable payment experience for customers.

It allows accepting online payments in any currency to increase conversion at checkout. Customers can have their funds settled in any of 10 currencies. They can also localize their customers’ payment journey by speaking to them in their language.
