New business growth. Unexpected fraud problems.

When PetMeds began to shift their business model — selling more over-the-counter products and retail goods — they started experiencing new fraud issues. Fraudsters were trying to place orders for retail items with stolen payment information to resell the products on third-party marketplaces. 

And because PetMeds had been primarily selling prescription pharmaceutical products — which are thoroughly vetted so that fraud does not happen — their protective measures were not reliable enough to stop the retail fraud. Plus, they relied heavily on manual reviews to manage risk.


Quick integration. Immediate results.

PetMeds was busy fighting fraud when they were searching for a provider — so they needed a solution with a quick onboarding process and smooth integration. And that’s what led the company to Kount.

After PetMeds signed up for Kount, the solution was live 30 days later. And their results were immediate. Within a day after launch, fraud rates dropped dramatically. 

And as the business expanded — launching a mobile app and brand new website shortly after implementing Kount — the solution was able to scale with the growth. Any new fraud threats were quickly resolved.


Better relationships. Higher transaction volume.

Now that fraud management is automated by Kount, PetMeds has been able to improve customer experiences with quicker checkout processes. Plus, the lower fraud rates have helped improve the company’s relationships with banks and processors.

Overall, PetMeds’ success with Kount has been quick and substantial. In a span of 90 days after implementation, the company experienced an increase in their transaction volume while achieving a 50% decrease in declined orders. Plus, they dropped their manual review rate to less than 2% and cut chargebacks by 98%.
