Managing chargebacks and inquiries

When you get a chargeback or inquiry on an order made with Shopify Payments, Shopify will collect evidence and send it to the credit card company on the due date. Before Shopify sends the response, you can add additional evidence in the Shopify admin. After the evidence is submitted, the chargeback or inquiry will be resolved in 60 days.
