Various features allow you to analyze this chart’s data in greater detail and learn more about your chargebacks.
The bottom of your chart lists some details: reason code, reason code description, chargeback count, and percentage of the total.
The default for this section is to display data for the most common reason code. However, if you hover over a different slice of the pie chart, the information at the bottom will update.
Filtering Data by Source

- Click Entire Portfolio to add a filter (MID, Processor, etc.).
- In the second dropdown list, select specific processors or merchant accounts to analyze.
