Each variable analytics chart provides unique information that can help identify the underlying cause of your disputes. This insight can help you solve issues at their source.

The BIN chart maps payment disputes back to the bank that issued the customer’s card.

This insight can help you identify differences in issuer preferences and expectations that are causing an increase in disputes.

Various features allow you to analyze this chart’s data in greater detail.

Hover Stats

Hover over any slice of the pie chart. A popup box will display:

  • the BIN being monitored and the bank name

  • the number of prevention cases associated with that BIN

  • the percent of total prevention cases attributed to the BIN

Filtering Data by Vendor

You can view charts for each of your different prevention services (Ethoca alerts, Verifi alerts, Order Insight, and Consumer Clarity).

  • Click on each service option, and the charts will update.

Filtering Data by Date Range

The data displayed in your charts is limited to activity that took place during the time you specified in the Date Range Selector. If you update the date range, the data will adjust.

The default time frame for the Date Range Selector is This Month (month-to-date activity). If you’d like to analyze data during a different time frame, click the date in the upper right corner of any page. This user guide explains how to customize your date ranges.

Midigator also has a BIN chart for chargeback data. It shows the chargeback count, percent of chargebacks, and the chargeback-to-transaction ratio for the different banks that disputed transactions.

  • Expand the sidebar on the left side of the screen.

  • Click on the Analytics page.

  • Select BIN from the chart dropdown.


The following are common questions that users have. If you have a question that isn't covered here, let us know. You can email or use the chat feature.

I received disputes from several different banks. Why aren’t all of them listed on the BIN chart?

Many of the analytics charts show just 10 data sources. These 10 entries are the highest risk and in need of the most attention.
