Piryx manages your chargebacks for you. When a donor requests a chargeback from their bank or credit card provider, Piryx will attempt to reinstate the charge. However, on some occasions, a chargeback may stand. Under some circumstances, Piryx may proactively remove funds equal to the full donation amount from your bank account at the instruction of the donor's bank or credit card company. Piryx will provide you with notification in these circumstances.

For each chargeback submitted, you will be charged a $29 administration fee regardless of if the chargeback stands or is refuted.

On occasion, you or a donor will contact Piryx to request a refund. For these requests, we will credit the Donor their donation and will debit your account for the full donation amount.

Do I need a merchant account to process my donations?
