How ecommerce fraud is prevented with Kount

What process does Kount use to detect and prevent fraud for online merchants? 

How ecommerce fraud prevention works

An ecommerce transaction is initiated.

A customer visits your online store, adds one or more items to their cart, and attempts to make a purchase. 


Data is collected.

Kount collects various data points like the customer’s email address, billing address, shipping address, IP address, device ID, and more.


Risk is calculated.

The customer data is analyzed by Kount’s machine learning. The technology looks at both the shopper’s past actions and current attributes for red flags to help determine the transaction’s level of risk.


Policies are applied.

The technology consults the policies you’ve set to determine how the transaction should be handled. 


A decision is made.

Kount will make a decision based on the level of risk, available data, and your pre-set policies. If you’d like the chance to personally check suspicious orders, the transaction may be flagged for review. Otherwise, it will either be approved or declined. 


Your ecommerce business grows confidently and efficiently.

Kount accurately blocks fraudulent transactions. That means you can reduce risk without hurting the relationships you have with good customers. And because automation can replace the need to manually review transactions, you can grow your business with unmatched efficiency.

What are the biggest fraud threats for ecommerce merchants?

Fraud tactics are always evolving. But these are a few of the biggest threats that seem to be ongoing issues for most ecommerce businesses. 

Kount icon warning

Unauthorized transactions

Fraudsters will use stolen credit cards or account information to make unauthorized transactions. These purchases are usually for personal gain or resale potential. And most of the time, a fraudulent charge is followed by a chargeback. If the issue gets out of hand, you could face more severe consequences — like brand damage or enrollment in a monitoring program.

Kount icon warning

Card testing fraud

Card testing is a specific type of unauthorized transaction. These purchases — which test the validity of stolen payment information — are usually for small amounts. But the damage can quickly add up. For example, say a fraudster tests 500 cards within a day. Not only do you pay a small fee to authorize each payment, you also pay chargebacks for any disputes made by the cardholder.

Kount icon warning

Account opening fraud

Opportunistic customers will open fake accounts to commit loyalty or discount fraud. They’ll take advantage of promotions designed to attract new, legitimate customers. What this means is that you give these promotions to people who won’t boost your bottom line. And as a result, you don’t get a return on your investment.

Kount icon warning

Account takeover

Online accounts usually contain tons of valuable assets like payment information and loyalty points. Fraudsters will attempt to hack into accounts to steal from the account holder. The result can be devastating. You may lose customers forever. And recovering from a major attack can be costly. You pay for any fees and disputes, security updates, and labor to restore accounts.

Kount icon warning

Refund fraud

There are several ways that opportunistic customers may try to exploit your refund policy. For example, they might try to get refunds without returning the merchandise. Or they may return counterfeit or used goods. And sometimes they may hire a professional refunding service to get refunds on their behalf. No matter how it happens, refund fraud costs you goods and revenue.


What kind of guarantees does Kount offer?

machine learning dashboard on mobile device

If you are in the market for a trust and safety solution — especially one that includes chargeback software — you are probably wondering what kind of performance guarantees are available. 

Some service providers offer a chargeback guarantee or chargeback insurance. And those guarantees typically involve undisclosed limitations and exceptions — which can cause inaccurate expectations and disappointment. 

But at Kount, we value transparency. We are always open and honest with our clients.

Our guarantee is this: Kount will relentlessly pursue excellence on your behalf. We will work tirelessly to ensure you achieve the very best results with the least amount of effort, the lowest costs, and the highest ROI.

Schedule a call with our team to learn more about our guarantees. And find out what it’s like to have a dispute management system with the very best chargeback prevention results possible — not expensive, “good enough” outcomes cloaked by false promises.
