Profit Efficiency as a Risk KPI

Justin Wang -- Microsoft


Many eCommerce companies use a variety of metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) to evaluate how effectively they are meeting specific business objectives. This presentation begins by looking at what KPIs are, and uses simulated data to help demonstrate shortcomings with chargeback KPIs like chargeback rate and weighted chargebacks. Next, false positives and control groups are discussed, followed by the concept of a confusion matrix.

The review concludes with a look at six advantages of using profit efficiency as a KPI.
