  2. Verify EDI and PO Data Consistency Consistency is key when it comes to avoiding chargebacks. Take the time to compare the EDI data and PO data to ensure that the information being sent and received aligns with the terms stated in your supplier agreement. This thorough cross-checking will minimize the potential for misunderstandings and subsequent chargebacks.

  3. Scrutinize Item Configurations Reviewing item configurations, including allowances, units, and weight information. Minor discrepancies in these details can lead to costly chargebacks. By paying attention to these specifics, you can catch potential errors before they become a financial burden.

  4. Collaborate with Trading Partners Maintaining open lines of communication with your trading partners is vital in preventing chargebacks. Addressing potential issues proactively will enhance mutual understanding and minimize the risk of disputes; before shipping, work closely with your partners before sending to resolve any discrepancies in the purchase orders.
