Trial and Continuity


Straight sales, Trial and Continuity Have Risks, That's Why We're Here


Straight, trial and continuity sales programs are generally considered to produce a higher than average risk of credit card transaction chargebacks from subscribers. Therefore, navigating the legions of “high-risk” processors is complicated, administratively time consuming and often far more expensive because the acquirer hasn’t taken the appropriate steps to manage the risk of chargeback upfront, when a subscriber commits to the product.


In January 2019, Mastercard announced a new policy designed to reduce the number of chargebacks for Trial and Continuity billing services.


Free trials “can be a legitimate and useful way to increase sales and improve consumer satisfaction. The new rules will help increase transparency and ensure an outstanding experience for cardholders.”   - Paul Petta, Chief Franchise Officer for Mastercard
