CyberSource and Ethoca Collaborate to Help Ecommerce Merchants Reduce Fraud
Jun 11 13
Visa and Ethoca are working together on a service that will notify eCommerce merchants of fraudulent transactions, allowing them to quickly stop the fulfillment process. The service is intended to help merchants reduce fraud losses and associated chargeback costs. The Visa-enhanced service is currently available to U.S. and Brazil merchants through Ethoca and also through CyberSource, wholly-owned subsidiary of Visa Inc. Using near real-time information from Visa on confirmed fraud transactions, Ethoca is able to send secure alerts to the affected merchants in the critical 24-72 hour window between when eCommerce orders are placed and when they are fulfilled or shipped, a significant reduction in time from the current average of three to six weeks it takes for merchants to be notified. The offering compares transactions from Ethoca's merchant customer base against fraud data sent by Visa and participating issuers. In the event a purchase is confirmed as fraudulent, Ethoca's platform immediately notifies the merchant through its alerts dashboard. This early warning gives merchants more time to stop the fulfillment process, limiting fraud losses.
