Handle disputes on the Airwallex web app

When a dispute arrives, merchants can review and respond to the dispute case on the Airwallex web app. The Airwallex dispute resolution tool enables you to monitor, receive the information, assess and when applicable defend the cases the Shoppers raise against you.

Response Queue

The Response queue facilitates you to quickly identify all pending dispute cases to be responded. Airwallex orders the dispute cases by expiry time thus you can focus on the most urgent dispute cases first. You can also search the specific dispute case by order ID and filter the dispute case by dispute reason and dispute stage.
