Why does SWREG appear on my bill or credit card statement?

Prior to 2007, the SWREG name appeared on all credit card statements, independent of product purchased or vendor. In 2007, SWREG added the ability for our vendors to provide their own company name or product name on credit card/billing statements in order to make it more recognizable to their customers. In addition, for all new SWREG vendors, we changed the billing defaults to reflect the vendor name in order to clearly show the specific information related to the purchase and minimize any customer confusion. However, we still have some vendors with the previous billing set up that have not migrated/switched to the new vendor-specific set up feature. Generally, most questions are related to credit card statements from these vendors using the billing set up before 2007. SWREG does provide a service to vendors to enable them to sell products to customers and provide vendor specific information such as product name on credit card and billing statements.

What if I suspect a charge is fraud?

Generally, the first step we recommend going to our site to lookup the charge. You will be able to see the product that was ordered and if you recognize the charge. If you do not recognize the charge, please contact us by clicking here and reporting the issue. We will immediately issue a refund for the order. Next we recommend you contact your credit card company and report the issue so they can further handle any changes, questions, or concerns there might be. There can occasionally be instances of fraud; we want to make sure the charges are credited right away for you.

Do you ever suspend vendors?

We thoroughly review all our clients and their products before they can begin using our payment processing services. We will also review any client where we see a number of complaints. These are rare, but when they occur, we will suspend payment processing services to those vendors.
