Ecommerce fraud has always been merchants’ top of mind challenge that keeps on disrupting them from their core business, preventing them from making the most out of their incoming traffic. Due to the limitations on rule-based applications, many genuine transactions are rejected, resulting in legitimate customers being disappointed by their shopping experience. This rigid fraud prevention approach not only has a negative impact on conversion rates, but also on the brand’s reputation especially nowadays, with social media platforms giving consumers a powerful voice.
