Save Yourself Time And Stress With Shopify Payments’ New Fraud Protection Feature

Whether you’re an eCommerce newbie or long-time expert, reviewing orders for traces of fraud is a pain. Chargebacks can have a serious impact on your business and hinder growth and success.

Thankfully, Shopify has the answer to your prayers. On May 8th 2018, Shopify announced the launch of the new Fraud Protect feature for Shopify Payments. Hooray! The feature will soon be available to all U.S. merchants, so keep your eyes peeled.

How does Fraud Protect work?

How many of you have cancelled a legitimate order due to suspected fraud? Shopify Fraud Protect works to eliminate that uncertainty.

Once you have activated Fraud Protect in your Shopify store, Shopify will analyse each eligible order for fraud, in turn providing a protect decision. Using Fraud Protect, you can forget about manually reviewing orders. Fraud Protect helps to streamline the entire fulfilment process for your business. Stores using the new feature can confidently fulfil all protected orders without having to check each and every one for suspected fraud.

What are the fees involved?

Merchants will be charged a small fee for each protected order. If a protected order incurs a chargeback, rest assured knowing Shopify will not only handle the dispute, but also automatically reimburse you for the order amount as well as the fee.

Spend less time dealing with fraud and focus on business growth

Using Fraud Protect, you can sell with peace of mind knowing your online sales are safe.
