Fraud and Risk Mitigation for Merchants in the Age of Crypto

Join us on Wednesday, November 23, 2022 at 14:00 Melbourne (November 22 19:00 Seattle / November 23 03:00 Dublin / 04:00 Berlin / 11:00 Singapore)

  • Ivan Yang, Director, APAC -- Trulioo
  • Luke Raven, Senior AML Compliance Manager -- Cabital

Despite overall economic uncertainty and crypto volatility, consumer interest doesn’t seem to be waning.

In a survey of 1,000 people conducted by Bank of America, 30% of respondents reported that they had no plans to sell their crypto holdings in the next six months. What’s more, 39% and 34% of those surveyed cited that they have used crypto as a payment method to make online or in-person purchases, respectively. The crypto space continues to mature leading to implications for merchants wanting to ward off nefarious activity while enacting sound risk mitigation strategies.

As crypto becomes more widely adopted by consumers and accepted as a form of payment by businesses, merchants need to carefully consider how to adapt to this new form of currency.

What’s more, as regulators enforce sanctions designed to curb the illicit use of crypto, proper digital identity verification procedures are more critical than ever in combatting bad actors while ensuring users can transact safely and securely.

This webinar will explore why the relationship between merchants and consumers needs to be underpinned by trust and how organizations need to ensure fiat and crypto off and on ramps and transactions are safe and compliant.

Learning objectives:

  • Understanding the intensifying interplay between fiat and crypto off and on ramps and the implications for merchants
  • Key factors to consider when making technology decisions with respect to identity verification and onboarding processes
  • Why evolving regulations that differ across jurisdictions call for agile practices and constant monitoring

Reducing Fraud and Friction in Consumer Experiences for Ecommerce

Join us on Wednesday, November 30, 2022 at 11:00 Dublin (03:00 Seattle / 12:00 Berlin / 19:00 Singapore / 22:00 Melbourne)

  • Surash Patel, VP of EMEA -- TeleSign

As regulatory oversight aimed at stopping financial fraud rises, the friction generated by identity and credit checks built into customer onboarding processes is causing many consumers to abandon their shopping carts. Consumers expect simple, fast, convenient onboarding.

The situation is forcing you as a business-to-consumer (B2C) business and online retailer to rethink your customer journeys. You need to find a way to put necessary protections in place that yield fast, accurate but simultaneously low friction and invisible checks. At the same time, consumers want to feel their identities and transactions are secure.

Additionally, businesses have implemented “guest check-out” facilities which have enabled them to reduce friction completely at the expense of not knowing who the end consumer is and introducing a higher potential for returns fraud.

Learning objectives:

  • Tackling digital identity challenges faced by businesses in the United Kingdom, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
  • Ways to reduce up to 90% of your drop-off during onboarding
  • Access to insights on fraudulent transactions and chargebacks and how you can tackle these challenges
  • Identify the challenges businesses could face when implementing such strategies
