When you receive a retrieval request, you should provide all available documentation to support the transaction. The documentation should relate to the reason stated on the retrieval request and you should return the documentation by the date listed on the request.
Important: If you do not respond on time, or your response is inaccurate, the retrieval request may result in a chargeback with no re-presentment rights. It may also cause a compliance violation.
Documentation may include, but is not limited to, copies of the following:
- Sales draft
- Rental agreement
- Any other documentation that you have kept
Documentation should meet the following requirements:
- Be clear and legible
- Correspond with the correct retrieval request
- Include the retrieval case number on each page
Note: Documents should contain all the elements required by your industry. For example, sales drafts must meet the minimum requirements listed later in this article.
Your response should meet the following requirements:
- Be provided before the due date listed on the original notification
- Include the original notification, as well as the retrieval case number
Note: If you send multiple responses, only the first response is used to fulfill the request.
Sales draft minimum requirements:
- Account number
- Expiration date
- Merchant name and location
- Transaction amount
- Transaction date
- Description of merchandise or service
- Ship to address (if applicable)
- Authorization code (if available)
- Cardholder name (if available)
Note: Sales drafts that contain a cardholder signature must include the details of the transaction on the same document in order to link the transaction with the signature. This also applies to signature-capture receipts.
