Vindicia in the News: How The Jewellery Channel Manages Missed Installment Payments
Like all online retailers, TJC has seen a good jump in the number of shoppers using its service and to make it even easier to shop -- and to therefore drive growth -- TJC relies on its BudgetPay service that allows consumers to buy jewellery with interest free credit.
The service, increasingly popular with all kinds of online retailers, allows the consumers to pay for a product in up to five monthly installments, the first of which is taken on the day of purchase when the product is sent to the customer. The remaining payments are taken automatically from the same card every month. But as many retailers that have brought in staged payments, there is one nagging problem: what happens when any of the subsequent payments fail?
Enter Vindicia. Vindicia's billing technology, powered by big data, can identify why a payment has failed and can automatically try different methods to ensure that the full payment is completed with minimal disruption to the customer. Vindicia receives up to 55 different error codes from banks that decline the payments -- and understand the means and methods to overcome these problems.
Vindicia partners with Paysafe, which accepts and processes payments from a wide range of different providers. To date Vindicia's collaboration with Paysafe and TJC has been able to recoup around 35% of TJC's total lost revenue.
And it has been a great success and helped drive TJC's growth. "Around 40% of our sales are on an installment basis and are roughly four installments on average," explains Nitin Panwad, Head of Finance at TJC. "Before using Vindicia, 2% of total credit due was failing (after multiple trials) and after using Vindicia, this 2% is reduced to 1.3% and we are expecting it to reduce further as we continue to learn."
The other area for growth, Panwad says, is mobile. "We have our own TJC Mobile app and also recently launched our iPad/tablet app to attract more customers. Mobile contributes substantially to our business and yes, it is growing. The nature of our business demands agility and our team is very good at adapting with the changing environment. Yes, the COVID-19 situation also required adaptation and we were able to adapt very well."

At SEON Technologies we have released new information on the collection countries that are most and least at risk of cyberattacks. We have also taken a close look at the most common types of cybercrime occurring in the US.
Dubbed the Global Cybercrime Report, the report explains how several countries are the safest in the world from fraud and other cybercrime. and why others are not. Our methodology for this research was based on how companies and public infrastructure are all being fairly well protected through both legislation and technology at their disposal.
This whitepaper focuses on three key areas -- Brazil, Mexico, and Chile -- offering market overviews of each as well as insights on the preferred ways in which consumers pay, with a particular focus on installments and, in the case of Brazil, Boleto Bancário. The document also delves into factors and best practices international merchants should consider before doing business in the region, including localization and regulations. Five trends and a glossary of terms conclude the paper.
