Fight Fraud

Confronting the Many Faces of Ecommerce Fraud

What's the main problem with ecommerce fraud? For one, it keeps changing as fraudsters continue to adapt. And with the ever-increasing spectrum of friendly fraud and false claims – from confused customers to buyer's remorse to outright abuse of the chargeback process – it's getting more complicated and costly to address, even with the growing range of ecommerce fraud prevention tools available. At the heart of the problem is a fundamental lack of communication between card issuers and merchants and a broken chargeback process that was never designed to share actionable intelligence. The result is that card issuers and merchants are suffering significant losses that are completely avoidable!

How Ethoca's Global Financial Transaction Network Fights CNP Fraud, Friendly Fraud and Criminals

In a word? Collaboration. We've taken the broken chargeback process and, step by step, replaced it with something much more effective for ecommerce fraud protection– a global collaboration network between merchants and card issuers. Finally, there's a way for card issuers and merchants to share intelligence at every stage of the fraud loss prevention and recovery process. 

Notification of card issuer confirmed fraud (that takes weeks through the chargeback process) now takes just minutes or hours through Ethoca’s network. With our suite of collaboration-based services, we make it possible for card issuers and merchants to recover value and reduce operating expenses. That means more time to focus on what really matters: customer experience and accepting every good transaction. And hey, we can help you with those, too!
