What is a friendly fraud solution?

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.

New payment methods increase friendly fraud risks this holiday season

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. Staying ahead of these fraud risks can help you expand options for consumers and keep the revenue.
