  • Course synopsis. Credit card chargebacks can cost merchants large amounts of money in fees, and in extreme cases with many chargebacks a merchant’s account might be closed down, crippling the organization’s ability to handle credit card transactions. For some merchants the crippling effect of chargebacks can lead to restrictive prescreening business practices that can impact sales conversion.  Credit card issuer alerts offer merchants a monitoring technique to manage some chargebacks post transaction, but before they are realized as chargebacks, allowing them to feel more comfortable with reduced fraud restrictions pre-purchase.
  • Credit Card issuer alerts have been around for several years, but many merchants and issuers are still not aware of how and where issuer alerts apply, and they aren’t familiar with what vendor options and capabilities are available in the market. The Fraud Practice has combined industry research with practical experience using credit card issuer alerts to produce this online course and data sheet dedicated to the credit card issuer alerts fraud technique.  The online course and data sheet are designed to provide a business with an overview of the credit card issuer alerts market; “what is it?” “What can you do with it?” "Who are the vendors that offer it, and how are they different?” “How does it fit into a risk program?” “How easy is it, and how long does it take, to implement?”

why should you consider becoming a certified ecommerce executive?

Fraud is a part of doing business, but if you are doing business online, or via the telephone, the risk for fraud is exponentially higher; and stopping it is exponentially more difficult. Regardless if you are a small business owner with a staff that consists of yourself; or a senior executive for a large corporation with a dedicated staff to manage fraud; you need to understand how online payments work and the fraud exposure and risk your company will have to manage to maintain strong profits.

Doing business online today means you need to be prepared to navigate the eCommerce fraud landscape. The eCommerce fraud landscape can be difficult if you don’t have a good understanding of the underlying terminology, lingo and technology that is available. The eCommerce channel is still relatively young, and everyone from your peers to solution providers, from associations to the media will be trying to tell you they know how to prevent fraud in your business better than you do. The reality is, what you hear will typically only represent partial pictures. For example, most merchants just starting to do business online believe they will be protected from fraud by the tools offered from the card associations. The reality is, while these tools provide some protection they will not be enough to prevent fraud from occurring.
