Grey Charges

Best Web company in New Delhi

, Megasoftwares, not only tries to keep you updated with the web design and development news and technologies, but also with what is spreading otherwise on the web world. Each of us sometime or the other surely must have experienced the frustration and pain of letting do away with chunks of our hard earned money for just nothing, for something we never consciously purchased, for something we never deliberately subscribed to. These unexpected unwanted billings, though in small amounts, on our credit card bills, though not fraudulent , are now termed as GREY/GRAY CHARGES. Fraud-fighting firm Billguard.com gives us clues and knowledge about how to be safer from merchants and even big established trusted names in the market, who repeatedly fill our credit cards with those unwanted little sums.
 

Our professional custom web application developers

develop perfect ecommerce website, web portals and we even build strong online marketplace, all provided with a bugfree payment module including transactions and online payment through various credit cards but its strange to hear how some merchants deceive the customer time and again.

Success of Grey Charges is much because the customers do not read the fine print as carefully as they should and just by the bold marketing scripts, they get deceived or confused. Shared below is the knowledge acquired about the six ways merchants use to levy grey charges on the customers, as described by BillGuard  » 

1. Zombie Subscriptions » Those subscriptions which will never go away even after you repeatedly keep requesting for their cancellation.
2. Unwanted auto-renewals » Having signed up for a product or service, which keeps getting renewed annually automatically without you getting a reminder prior to the renewal.
3. Negative Option Marketing » Having signed up for a product you deceptively happen to sign up for another alongwith which you never intended to purchase.
4. Free services that turn paid by themselves » Merchants many a times trick their customers by confusing and convincing them to pay for a service they thought was free or a free service turns into paid by itself without an intimation and you get into the loop of unwanted auto-renewals thereafter.
5. Cost-Creep » A monthly or quarterly fee that very slowly keeps creeping to higher grades and amounts.

So, next time you get your credit card bill and prior to that, next time you use your credit card for any purchase, don't mind sparing few minutes to scrutinize your bill.


Till Next...
