Increasing Sales Conversion Through Issuer Alerts

Effective risk management leaders and strategies seek to find balance between sales conversion and fraud prevention. It is understood that there is a trade-off with being overly strict to prevent fraud as this tends to negatively impact sales. Conversely, being very lenient and encouraging high sales conversion can lead to increased levels of missed fraud and higher chargeback rates. While most risk management tools and techniques occur before and during the point of transaction, this white paper focuses on Issuer Alerts as a means of reducing chargebacks post-transaction, potentially freeing up ways for organizations to focus more on sales conversion.

what to expect

The Increasing Sales Conversion Through Issuer Alerts white paper discusses Issuer Alerts in the context of how it is used to reduce chargeback rates and how this can enable merchants and other organizations to continue or increase efforts intended to drive more sales. The intent of this white paper is to define and explain the key concepts and considerations for building this business case.

Issuer Alerts provide notification of transactions where the issuer intends to file a chargeback on behalf of the consumer. For these orders, the Issuer Alert provides organizations an opportunity to proactively respond and prevent a chargeback from occurring. This enables merchants to reduce the number of fraud and non-fraud related chargebacks, effectively lowering their chargeback rate while making no changes to the risk screening performed upfront. In doing so, the merchant can then weigh decisions on whether or not to be more lenient and let more orders flow, knowing that many of the chargebacks can later be avoided by proactively responding to Issuer Alerts.
