In the event of a dispute, a friendly fraud solution can help businesses relay transaction details to issuing banks and help customers recognize purchases. These tactics combined can stop disputes from becoming chargebacks.
Friendly fraud (or first-party fraud) can be accidental, intentional, or the result of a merchant error or policy abuse. As part of Kount’s Assess digital fraud solutions, merchants can also assess transaction risks pre-authorization to make decisions. For example, they can decline or review transactions from identities with high rates of friendly fraud disputes.

When customers recognize purchases, you stop disputes in their tracks. Plus, you get to keep revenue from their purchase and avoid friendly fraud chargebacks and fees that can hurt your business.
Resolve disputes quickly
Helping customers recognize purchases can help you create positive brand experiences. And if you need to refund a purchase, you can do so quickly and further prevent chargebacks.

Almost half (46.4%) of respondents in a recent Kount survey say they’ll choose BNPL at checkout this holiday season. Meanwhile, 44.95% say they’re likely to purchase a subscription as a gift. New payment methods and offerings like these can drive revenue, but they also increase friendly fraud risks if consumers forget purchases or don’t understand re-billing terms and conditions.
