Issuer Alerts Technique Course & Data Sheet

  • Credit card chargebacks can cost merchants large amounts of money in fees, and in extreme cases with many chargebacks a merchant’s account might be closed down, crippling the organization’s ability to handle credit card transactions. For some merchants the crippling effect of chargebacks can lead to restrictive prescreening business practices that can impact sales conversion.  Credit card issuer alerts offer merchants a monitoring technique to manage some chargebacks post transaction, but before they are realized as chargebacks, allowing them to feel more comfortable with reduced fraud restrictions pre-purchase.

  • Credit Card issuer alerts have been around for several years, but many merchants and issuers are still not aware of how and where issuer alerts apply, and they aren’t familiar with what vendor options and capabilities are available in the market. The Fraud Practice has combined industry research with practical experience using credit card issuer alerts to produce this online course and data sheet dedicated to the credit card issuer alerts fraud technique.
