Merchant risk support in online payments
When selling goods or services online, one may face situations when the transaction doesn’t process.
The reasons may vary:
- Not enough funds.
- The credit card has expired.
- The payment gateway declined a transaction.
Also, there are a lot of situations when money was withdrawn, but a customer didn’t receive a good/service.
The main task of merchant risk support is the timely identification and prevention of possible adverse events. In particular, risk managers handle and challenge chargebacks.
