Integrating Location Data Into Sub-Merchant Onboarding Processes to Stop Fraud
We all know that merchant acquirers and payment facilitators are responsible for customer chargebacks caused by fraudulent sub-merchants. Some people in payments processing and fintech think of this kind of fraud as just the “cost of doing business.” In reality, it can mean the difference between being profitable or going out of business.
Fortunately, there’s an additional set of data that can be easily integrated into your onboarding process to reduce the number of fraudulent sub-merchants making it onto your system: advanced location signals. In this white paper, GeoComply shares how fraudsters easily manipulate IP addresses to fake their location, and how using modern geolocation data to determine a user's true location improves efficiency and confidence when onboarding new sub-merchants.
