What Makes Intelligent Source Detection™ So Innovative?
It’s no surprise to us that payments industry figures would recognize what a significant advancement our Intelligent Source Detection™ technology represents. After all, effective chargeback mitigation strategies have remained elusive for years, and our Intelligent Source Detection™ represents the first solution to yield real success.
Chargebacks911® was the first service provider to determine that any chargeback can be attributed to one of just three things: merchant error, criminal fraud or friendly fraud. However, the big question remained: how can merchants identify which of these three sources was to blame?
Intelligent Source Detection™ is the answer. For the first time ever, it is possible to conclusively identify the source of merchants’ chargebacks. This technological advancement removes the guesswork and the trial-and-error adjustment to produce superior results.
We use the identified source of the chargeback to create prevention and mitigation strategies.
Previously, merchants were forced to rely on reason codes for chargeback management. Since friendly fraud can be disguised with any reason code, this method is inefficient.
For example, in 2015, merchants lost $118 billion to false positives while actual credit card fraud only cost $9 billion. An inability to identify the true source of the fraud created an overly aggressive prevention strategy. Targeting the wrong source is costly and inefficient.
Intelligent Source Detection™ enhances the representment process too.
Without Intelligent Source Detection™, a significant portion of illegitimate chargebacks remained unchallenged. Since merchants were unable to identify the true source, they had to rely on the accompanying reason code.
The majority of chargebacks are filed with an “unauthorized transaction” reason code that implies true criminal fraud—which is undisputable. However, Chargebacks911® has found as much as 80% of chargebacks are actually cases of friendly fraud. By identifying the true source, merchants can challenge more cases and recover more revenue.
Merchants no longer need to worry about jeopardizing customer relations while disputing chargebacks. Without Intelligent Source Detection™, merchants run the risk of disputing actual criminal fraud, which would lead to distrust and strained relationships. However, by definitively identifying friendly fraud, merchants can challenge chargebacks without negatively impacting client retention.
