Issuing a Mastercard or Visa branded debit card means you’re governed by the operating rules of the brand. Generally, the brand rules dictate how to handle transaction presentments and subsequent chargebacks between the issuer, acquiring financial institution, and merchant. Some rules overlap with Regulation E provisions (e.g., zero cardholder liability). Regulation E governs the relationship between card-issuing financial institutions and consumer accountholders. It’s the go-to reference for compliance when handling debit card disputes. Do the rules conflict, or are they complementary? This webinar will examine the obligations from both sets of requirements and analyze the differences.
