Force Majeure Chargebacks


Force majeure chargebacks stem from situations where a force majeure clause in a sales contract releases the customer from their payment obligations to the merchant.

These clauses typically apply in extraordinary circumstances beyond the control of either party, such as natural disasters, war, or pandemics like COVID-19. The pandemic led to a surge in force majeure chargebacks, particularly impacting industries such as tourism and hospitality.
