This can lead to significant back-and-forth between merchandise supplier and retailer, and chargebacks that may never be resolved. In addition, the disputing process may remain unclear to the supplier, and thus continue to reoccur.

These responses combined with compliance guidelines offered by numerous retailers generated a helpful matrix of recommended documentation to back common deduction disputes, which can be viewed here.
