Fraud prevention is a numbers game. The most important key performance indicators (KPIs) to watch are your chargeback rates and decline rates.
If your domestic chargeback rate is more than 0.25% and/or your decline rate is more than 1.5%, you have a fraud problem.
Your chargeback rate (also called a chargeback ratio) is the number of chargebacks compared to your overall transactions for a given month.
More chargebacks = a higher chargeback rate.
Each card issuer calculates this ratio slightly differently.
Visa divides the current month’s number of chargebacks by the current month’s number of transactions. MasterCard divides the current month’s number of chargebacks by the previous month’s number of transactions.
Fraud prevention strategies must be aligned with businesses goals. For this to happen, you need a solution that enables you to manage performance, not complicated features.
