Submit a Manual Dispute

Bolt has launched a new Merchant Dashboard experience. See this page for help documentation that reflects the new dashboard.

Merchants can submit disputes manually for transactions with a completed or authorized status from the Bolt Merchant Dashboard.

This process is only for Bolt-liable chargebacks completed through certain payment processors.

Before You Start

Check Eligibility

Some payment processors automatically send dispute information to Bolt, but for others, you’ll input each Bolt-liable dispute into the Bolt Merchant Dashboard for our chargebacks team to handle.

Use the following table to understand the set up and submission steps for your processor:

Processor How to grant account access How to submit dispute info
Adyen Automated dispute handling n/a
Authorize.net n/a Manual dispute submissions
Bolt Payments n/a n/a
Braintree Automated dispute handling n/a
CardConnect n/a Manual dispute submissions
CyberSource n/a Manual dispute submissions
NMI n/a Manual dispute submissions
PayPal PayFlow Pro n/a Manual dispute submissions
Radial n/a Manual dispute submissions
Rocketgate n/a Manual dispute submissions
Stripe n/a n/a

Set Communication Preferences

Set up your communication preferences so that you receive digital notifications for new chargebacks. This ensures that you have enough time to submit the dispute and respond with evidence.
