A charge back occurs when the credit card holder disputes a charge
to their credit card. Typically these are because you don't recognize/remember
purchasing anything from LOADUP by the time your statement comes. Unfortunately,
a charge back generates a lot of paper work for the all the parties
between the credit card holder and us LOADUP. To cover the extra work
it takes to process the paper work, the bank charges us a fee of $20,
which we need to pass on to the customer. To avoid this, please retain
your receipt from the order so you recognize LOADUP on your credit card
bill and avoid creating the charge back fee to us.
