Protect your shoppers and prevent fraudsters simultaneously.
WHY IS FRAUD PROTECTION SO ESSENTIAL?
Combatting the speed -growing fraud and data interception around the globe should be the top priority for every business accepting CNP (card not present) payments. Any Ecommerce or MOTO transactions need to work close to the payment's provider with excellent fraud prevention solutions to ensure that their customers’ data and the prevention engine are the best can be.
In certain cases, fraudsters holding hacking card data allow them purchase on your website. As a merchant, you will deliver the product before the card holder opens a dispute and ask for reimbursement (chargeback). You may be left without the product and without the money. In addition, the payments provider or acquiring bank will learn about the fraud and may terminate your merchant account, breaching chargeback thresholds rate, and/or FRAUD TO SELL rate. You'll be put on a blacklist, or pay fines, meaning it will be hard to reopen a new merchant account.

OPTIONAL EXTENDED CHECKS
Our internal RBS (rules-based system), runs more rules and checks like: Velocity controls
based on shoppers’ purchase attempts within a certain period. BIN GEO issuing match
The first 6 digits of a card number reveal it's issuing bank/institution name and country. If the actual location of an online shopper (IP country) is different than the BIN country, the transaction will be flagged or blocked.
A customer’s name, address and email are compared across the entire payment gateway database. Excessive changes - for example, if the card number has been used in the past with other names or email addresses, the attempt will be blocked.
Any customer’s details, which have been flagged in the past as fraud suspicious on the ‘blacklist’, will be blocked by a fraud scrub filter automatically.
It is some more sensitive rules that all of them help us to minimize fraud possibilities.
