For merchants in many verticals, digital delivery makes eminent sense. Travel, gaming (both the video version and gambling), event ticketing and others saw the potential of digital delivery of their goods and services very early on in the evolution of e-commerce. Even traditional retailers have gotten involved through the growing popularity of e-gift cards. The convenience for customers is unsurpassed. But some of the very characteristics that make this distribution channel a win for customers, makes these verticals tempting targets from fraudsters.
The first issue of a new publication from Card Not Present—The CNP Review—takes an in-depth look at the fraud types most affecting digital-goods merchants, why false positives are so prevalent, how bots have supercharged the account takeover fraud experienced by these merchants and what e-gift card providers can do to mitigate their growing risk.
Each quarter The CNP Review will tackle another subject in four feature-length articles. Be on the lookout.
