This document summarizes our approach to complaints handling and is designed to give an outline of the process involved, our commitment to a fair and equitable resolution. This policy defines our way of handling complaints, dispute resolution mechanism, and refund processing.
This policy covers grievances arising from Merchants, Sponsor/Acquiring Banks, Platforms (NPCI, VISA, Mastercard), payment service providers, Destination/Issuing banks, cardholders, and A/C holders. We store detailed records and explanations for all types of disputes and define procedures for dealing with complaints and disputes.

We have determined the type of complaints and same get routed to respective internal stakeholders to respond quickly. Refer to the below methods of addressing the key complaints with the timeline for resolution.

Card and Account holders can raise disputes for the below reasons and based on the nature of the dispute we connect with respective stakeholders and resolve the same with required details.
Only customers (card and Account holders) can raise disputes with CAMSPay. We share the disputed transaction details to merchants via our dashboard with timelines to submit the required details. CAMSPay applies the below process to receive and respond to disputes.
Merchants can share the proof against the dispute/chargeback to defend the dispute. The documents and details include transaction details, product information, Terms & Conditions, Cancellation policy, Proof of delivery, customer confirmation letter, refund policy, Reference number from banks, and any other supporting documents related to the dispute. Merchants can share those details via our dashboard or to the merchant support team. If the merchant agrees the dispute, they can accept the chargeback and authorize the refund.
CAMSPay evaluates the proofs and documents and shares it with customers via banks and platforms. Based on the outcome CAMSPay closes the dispute or chargeback to the merchant to close the dispute. If the merchant provides all the details and decides to defend the dispute, CAMSPay defends it with bank, and the final decision is taken by CAMSPay to resolve the dispute.
If merchants do not share the required document or provide insufficient documents, CAMSPay changes the status to Open & Capture Fund (We hold the disputed amount out merchant settlement) based on the response the amount gets refunded to customers or settled back to merchants. The entire activity has a set of timelines at each level and the same gets updated to all stakeholders.
CAMSPay processes the refund to the original payment method and if the merchant and customer agree to process through the different channel that will not be applied for this process. We have intuitive ways to process refunds via APIs, dashboard, and ways to set auto-refund for the below scenarios.
Due to network/API communication drop and delayed response from banks, there can be a status change of transactions, due to which amount may get debited from customer account but service/product may not be rendered to customers. Merchants can reverse such transactions or accept them. This is enabled at the CAMSPay end based on merchant request. The normal merchant agreed refunds get processed via refund APIs and CAMSPay dashboard. Merchants can initiate the refund and CAMSPay will process the refund and adjust in subsequent days settlement.
We also have API level and recon level processes to address the forced success transactions from banks and the same is refunded or settled based on the nature of business.
