There’s a big gap in digital commerce. Merchants have very detailed data on their entire customer journey up until one of the most critical points: the payment. At that point, many are lacking clear visibility and real insight into their approval rates and other business metrics, often resulting in loss of revenue and higher total cost of payments acceptance. This is mainly due to unclear or insufficient payment data—payment data with which they could easily answer questions like Why are 15% of my orders declined and what could/should I do about that? Most merchants don’t have easy access to the answers.

Participants in the ecosystem such as payment gateways, payment service providers (PSPs), third-party fraud tool providers, BIN service providers, acquiring banks, card brands, and issuing banks (and APM schemes) must all come together in some capacity for a single payment to go through successfully.

All these layers between buyers, merchants, and approved transactions have different technology standards, formats, data fields and, most importantly, definitions of data and data fields—both in what is sent out (for approval) and what comes back (in response). It all adds up to a huge challenge for businesses to easily access and turn payments data (whether from one or many PSPs/processors) into actionable insights. How can you improve performance if you don’t know what to tweak or why? How can you monitor any changes over time?

All merchants have some form of blind spots in their payments data that can help them uncover and address costly issues or opportunities to improve. And what could be more relevant today—in an economy where companies, teams, and people are being asked to do more with the same (or less) resources—than finding ways to optimize your existing payment stack?

Visa CE 3.0 Deep Dive: Leveraging the New Rules to Fight First Party Misuse

Join this webinar to hear a detailed discussion on leveraging the updated Visa compelling evidence rules (Visa CE 3.0) to successfully combat first-party misuse. This new rule comes into effect mid-April, helping to tackle one of the largest problems in ecommerce. MRC is facilitating an educational presentation from Visa experts, where they will address top questions from merchants on Visa CE 3.0. 

With this evolution, merchants can now provide issuers with historical transaction details to confirm the legitimacy of a transaction and block illegitimate fraud claims by the consumer. This webinar will cover how merchants can leverage this rule change in both the pre-dispute path (deflecting the dispute prior to formal processing) and post-dispute path (providing the qualified CE3.0 data in pre-arbitration) for Visa transactions. 

Webinar highlights:

· Updates on the Visa CE 3.0 rule change since its initial announcement 

· Explore the various use cases of the new compelling evidence rules 

· The nuances of compelling evidence both pre- and post-dispute 

· Discussion on what’s next for compelling evidence rules from Visa

This webinar is an opportunity for merchants to clarify any questions they have on pre- and post-dispute paths and how this change impacts the wider payments ecosystem. Merchants can submit questions for Visa at registration or during the live event, and the session will be available on-demand for MRC members.
