Hi [Name],

Let’s talk about fraud for a second. 

It’s one of the biggest challenges that businesses are facing today. And it’s a problem that impacts every part of your company.

Fraud will drain your revenue, waste your resources, and cost you manual labor. It will damage your brand reputation and leave you in chargeback monitoring programs.

We want to make sure you’re in the best position to stop fraudulent orders from happening on your website, so you can avoid these repercussions. 

Our partner, Kount, is an expert at detecting and preventing online fraud. 

We encourage you to check out their list of 30 “red-flags” that could tell you an order is high-risk. 

[30 Telltale Signs of Fraud]

We’ve partnered with Kount to offer you access to the best fraud prevention technology in the industry. Interested in getting started? Send us a message!


Hi [Name],

Fraud prevention is a tricky balancing act. 

The goal is to block fraudsters without turning good customers away. And to do that, you need to understand who is actually behind each transaction. 

At the end of the day, you don’t have time to manually review every order, and decide whether it should be approved or declined. 

Which leads us to why we chose to partner with Kount. 

Kount’s technology instantly evaluates every interaction – so you can automatically approve, decline, or hold orders for review based on the level of risk that was detected. 

Because of our partnership, you can let their tools do the heavy lifting! 

Just send us a message to let us know you’re interested in this feature, and we’ll help you with the next steps.

Managing common objections

It’s natural for merchants to have reservations about using new technology. Here are some objections our team commonly hears and some suggested responses.

Kount's solution has a very easy integration. Most merchants are integrated, tested, trained, and live in production in about 18 days.

Kount takes security very seriously. They are certified compliant with PCI-DSS, SOC 2, GDPR, CCPA, and HIPAA.

All data is encrypted in transit and at rest. Either Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) or Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) is used for data transmission.

Most often, it is not whether or not you have a fraud problem but when you will have a fraud problem. This is why many of our clients have been proactive in protecting their revenue and reputation before the fraudsters arrive.
