Chargeback

SEON’s tools are designed to tell you exactly which payments are risky, and why. That involves extracting metadata from the card number but also compiling a digital footprint of the cardholder to catch all types of fraud.

The goal? To help you prevent and dispute chargeback fraud better than ever. Whether you’re dealing with criminals who pay using stolen credit card numbers or the less obvious friendly fraud, SEON is here to help.

Enrich data based on a single email address or phone number and link it to the user’s online accounts. Run a BIN lookup on the card to instantly see if it’s pre-paid, where it was issued, and if there are any validity concerns. Technical data such as IP addresses and device configurations are also key indicators of fraudulent users.

When it comes to fighting friendly fraud chargebacks, the same rules apply. Gather all payment and user information in one place thanks to SEON’s outstanding UX and reporting features. You can even spot suspicious connections between accounts to stop fraud rings and multi-accounting.

Best of all, SEON’s digital footprint analysis tool acts as a form of identification, allowing you to control the payment stage without any friction – and even letting you meet Strong Customer Authentication requirements for PSD2.

FAQ

How does SEON help with chargeback fraud?

SEON lets you gather hundreds of data points relating to the customer’s online identity, device, card number, IP and more. All this data helps you run risk checks which automatically flag fraudulent payments so you can stop them before they turn into chargebacks.

Can SEON help with friendly fraud chargebacks?

Yes. All the data you gather about the customer and transaction is securely stored and available in customizable reports. That means you can submit it as evidence that the cardholder was indeed in charge of the transaction, and that order fulfillment was as expected.

Does SEON offer chargeback fraud dispute resolution?

No. SEON can be deployed as a full end-to-end fraud prevention solution, or you can pick and choose the API modules that help your chargeback prevention strategy. While we offer powerful reporting features, you’ll need to present the data yourself in case of a dispute.

"With SEON, I can see that the address has been around since 2012 because it appeared in data breaches. I can see it’s been registered on these 15 other social websites. From then I can just manually match the relevant information to make my case. Working with more accurate data allows me and my team to move faster – and with minimum user friction. Whereas the team had to wait hours or days to verify someone’s payment, SEON allows them to do it in 30 mins or less."

"As soon as our staff used SEON on a regular basis, they could see its value. It immediately started saving them time as they didn’t have to trawl through the usual checkpoints. So much so, that the time spent by Air France analysts on manual reviews is down by an impressive 70%. Instead, all the information they needed was on one screen with a simple scoring system enabling them to see if a transaction was real or not."

"The most useful thing for us was to be able to see if the email and phone numbers weren’t registered anywhere. We also rely on the device fingerprinting metadata in our scorecard to filter out junk users. We immediately saved about 6% of costs on our automated KYC checks. After only 2 months, we started seeing impressive results. Up to 3 times fewer cases of defaulting customers in new regions such as Romania and Europe. 4 months later, the fraud rates dropped by over 65%."

"We were looking at another provider, but they came back to us with a 4-6 months integration window. With SEON, it was literally a phone call, sandbox tests on Monday and by the end of the week, it was done. One other thing I’d like to comment on is the pricing model. It’s really 2022, like for scaling together. The SEON model, it’s now one we actively look for with our other partners. Clearly an organization that approaches work and its customers in a different way."

"I tested some extra rules, and over a few months I managed to push SEON’s auto approval from an initial accuracy of 95% unto 99.5%. Taking the time to update your SEON rules is an investment that gives great results. And the best thing is that we can do so without deploying any software. From an engineering perspective, it is extremely time and resource saving, allowing us to react much faster."

"I couldn’t believe how fast the results came,” says Gergely. “Our chargeback rates dropped by 91% in one month only.” Moreover, the number of manual queries and fraud catch rates continued to improve after the initial 30 days as the system adjusted itself – part of the benefits of deploying a machine-learning algorithm to fine-tune accuracy."
