How can I submit a merchant dispute?

All Brex users can submit disputes for their own transactions directly from the Brex dashboard. Disputes cannot be submitted through the mobile app at this time.

Before submitting a merchant dispute, we recommend doing the following:
  • Check with any authorized users on your account to see if they made the purchase.
  • Contact the merchant and work directly with them.
  • If the merchant isn’t able to help resolve the issue, file a dispute and we’ll work to make things right on your behalf. This process can take up to 90 days.
