IRIS CRM Adds Merlink Integration to Dispute Responder for TSYS FSP ISOs

Dispute Responder for Merchants of TSYS FSPs

After several months of work and much anticipation, IRIS CRM is thrilled to announce the latest enhancement to our Dispute Responder — Support For TSYS FSP ISOs! From new and updated dispute notifications to electronic replies and response reminders, Dispute Responder now has everything TSYS FSP merchants need to win more of their disputes to retain their hard-earned revenue. 

The enhanced Dispute Responder enables TSYS FSP ISOs , agents, and their merchants to see incoming chargeback documents, submit replies, and view all of the key chargeback details. By enabling dispute notifications, users will be alerted when a new dispute is submitted or an existing dispute is updated. Response reminders will also be sent to users 7 days, 3 days, and 1 day ahead of the response due date to help ensure a response is submitted on time.  

Merchants and ISOs will receive notifications of new chargebacks and retrievals within 24 hours of a dispute being filed. Once notified, merchants can easily reply with their supporting documentation directly from IRIS CRM. Dispute statuses are automatically updated in IRIS CRM so merchants and ISOs can stay on top of the dispute process. 

TSYS FSP ISOs can leverage IRIS CRM to attract more merchants by giving them the ability to electronically respond to disputes through their custom-branded merchant portal. Dispute Responder in addition to our existing reporting and boarding integrations provide a powerful, fully-integrated solution for TSYS FSP ISOs and their merchants.

How to Set Up TSYS Dispute Responder

Step 1: Submit a New Project to TSYS

In order to enable TSYS Dispute Responder functionality within IRIS CRM, you need to first reach out to your TSYS relationship manager to submit a new project. In your request, note that the project is for Merlink file transmission to IRIS CRM.

Once TSYS has completed their portion of the setup, they will provide SFTP credentials that IRIS CRM Support will need to configure the datasource in IRIS CRM as described in the next step.

Step 2: Add TSYS Dispute Responder Datasource

Once you have the SFTP credentials from TSYS, the TSYS Dispute Responder datasource will need to be configured in IRIS CRM. Contact our support team who will gladly assist you with setup.
