How to Dispute an Apple Pay Charge
If you use Apple Pay for digital payments, whether at a physical store or sending money to someone else, you might need to send a dispute at some point. This can occur when you see an unauthorized charge or fall victim to fraud.
Remember that it’s essential to act quickly whenever you think your Apple Pay account might be compromised. The faster you file a dispute or take other action, the more likely you’ll be able to fix the issue.
It’s also important to know that you won’t automatically get a refund or your money back just because you file a dispute. Apple or your bank will look at the circumstances of the dispute and reach a unique resolution for every situation.
Now that we’ve covered some basics related to Apple Pay disputes, here are the steps to dispute an Apple Pay charge. There are a few ways to go about this, so I’ll explain each in the sections below.
How to Dispute an Apple Pay Charge with the Wallet App
Disputing an Apple Pay charge with the Wallet app on your iPhone is the easiest way to make it happen. You can dispute a transaction and resolve things quickly with a few clicks.
Note that you can only file a dispute through the Wallet app if you use the Apple Card as the payment option for your Apple Pay account. I’ll review the steps to file a dispute if you have a different debit or credit card associated with the account in the sections below.
Follow these steps to dispute an Apple Pay charge on your iPhone:
- Open the Wallet app on your iPhone.
- Tap your Apple Card.
- Find the transaction you want to dispute. You might need to scroll through all of your recent transactions to find the right one.
- Tap the transaction you want to dispute.
- Some options will pop up, and choose the type of issue you want to dispute.
- Tap Done.
How to Dispute an Apple Pay Charge with Customer Support
If you didn’t have luck disputing the charge through the Wallet app or just want to speak directly with a human rather than your iPhone, you should reach out the Apple Customer Support directly.
A Customer Support representative should be able to walk you through all the steps to file a dispute quickly. You will need to provide them with some basic information, like the details of the transaction and your Apple ID.
Contacting Customer Support doesn’t change the dispute process or the chances of getting a refund if you fall victim to fraud. But some people prefer speaking directly to a support person rather than taking other steps.
How to Dispute an Apple Pay Charge with your Bank
If you don’t have an Apple Card and still use Apple Pay, you have a different debit or credit card set up with your Apple Pay account. You need to contact the issuing bank of this card directly to file a dispute in this case.
The dispute filing process can vary from bank to bank, so I can’t provide detailed steps for every option here. Most of the time, you just need to reach out to a customer representative from your bank to start the process.
And just like with Apple Pay, filing a dispute with your bank does not guarantee you’ll get a refund or resolve the issue. But this is your best option if you have an Apple Pay account but don’t use the Apple Card.
Many debit and credit cards offer fraud prevention services. These can help you notice a suspicious charge quickly, leading to fewer losses and a better likelihood that the issue will be resolved.
Here are a few short answers to some of the most frequently asked questions related to how to dispute an Apple Pay charge.
