Dave Wilkes – Founder & CEO at Chargeback
Dave Wilkes has been involved in several FinTech startups. Chargeback was born in 2007 focused on serving merchants with a high number of credit card chargebacks. At the end of 2015, they took a long hard look at the state of commerce and decided it was time to shake things up. They set out to build software and tools that would help all merchants, large and small, high risk or not, prevent and manage chargeback fraud. A revolution was underway and it was driven by merchants. Their clients wanted software and tools that would visualize their situation and help them make informed decisions. They wanted their entire commerce stack integrated with automation, business rules, workflows and a dashboard that captured it all in one place. Chargeback is now connected to all major ecommerce platforms and payment providers and work with some of the world’s largest brands including Levi Strauss, Michael Kors, Carter’s, Nikon and Tommy Hilfiger. They offer free monitoring and reporting for all merchants, which allows them to provide immediate value to any and all merchants.
