ITEX Insights
Did you know....when you are disputing a purchase that you find on your statement, you can generally work it out with the seller. If not, ITEX has a dispute resolution format to protect the buyer. The seller is required to provide documentation of delivery or the transaction may be reversed. If the dispute is regarding pricing or the quality of an item, the dispute must be resolved between the buyer and the seller as ITEX has no ability to be the judge of the quality or pricing agreed to. When making a sale, make sure you have documentation from the buyer. It's just good business!

NOTE: ITEX processes thousands of transactions each year with less than .001% in dispute.
