How do I dispute a transaction on my account?

We can help with transactions in your account you don’t recognise.

What is a transaction dispute?

A transaction dispute occurs when you question a transaction on your ubank account.

If the issue falls under one of the following categories, you may be able to raise a dispute:

  • Multiple charges have been made for the same purchase.
  • You were charged the wrong amount for a purchase.
  • You did not receive goods and/or services you paid for.

A pending transaction will need to settle before we can help.

Before you lodge a transaction dispute

If you see an unfamiliar or incorrect transaction on your account, before you lodge a transaction dispute check for the following:

  • Confirm your shared account holder didn’t make the transaction.
  • Search online to see if the unrecognised name is linked to a business you bought from.
  • Check the purchase is not from a few days ago, as there can be delays between payment and the transaction displaying.
  • Get more details about the transaction by logging into other payment gateways such as PayPal, App Store, Google Play, Shopify or Uber.
  • Contact the merchant directly. Sometimes, this can be the fastest way to resolve the issue.

You can see the transaction and merchant details by selecting the transaction in the ubank app or in online banking.
