Introduction to eCommerce Merchant Underwriting

When assessing the risk of a business applying for a merchant account, what factors are most important? Are merchants simply approved or denied, or are there conditions and controls used to be able to underwrite a merchant? Do you know when and which credit controls are best used, or how requiring reserves or having a sales cap affects the potential pool of merchant clients?

These are all considerations when assessing the risk of a merchant and these are all topics covered in the Introduction to eCommerce Merchant Underwriting course. This training session teaches about the controls used to mitigate credit and fraud risk when underwriting eCommerce merchants and provides key formulas for calculating merchant risk metrics related to chargebacks, refunds and non-delivery.
