French domestic Fraud and Chargeback Programs update

The French domestic scheme Cartes Bancaires has launched its fraud and chargeback programs.

The programs are comparable to the fraud and chargeback programs that Visa and MasterCard have in place in Europe today.

Merchants processing domestically in France via Adyen’s domestic acquiring solution are processing through the Cartes Bancaires network and in scope of these programs.

In the manual linked below we outline:

  • The rules that govern Cartes Bancaires fraud and chargeback programs;
  • Potential penalties that can be levied on Merchants if fraud and chargeback levels are not rectified in a timely fashion.

Do not hesitate to contact your Account Manager or Adyen Support should you have additional questions.
