Affiliate Monitoring

Benefit from the insight of millions of affiliates around the world. If affiliates are identified as fraudsters, they can be banned from the affiliate network. Kount can subsequently identify any order activity generated by a banned affiliate to prevent fraudulent orders.

Frequently Asked Questions

We use a third-party affiliate network to help drive additional sales of our product. Can Kount help reduce fraud coming through another network?
Yes. Kount reviews all transactions and can link them to their origination, revealing fraudulent activities. Before you approve the lead, download, or sale, Kount can give you insight that eliminates fraud and accepts only valid transactions.
When we find a bad affiliate we kick them off the network and close their account, but they just come back and sign up again. How can Kount protect us against this type of activity?
Kount’s Patented Multi-Layer Device Fingerprinting and Order Linking technology makes it nearly impossible for blocked affiliates to regain access to the network. Kount also creates a negative list you can monitor to keep blocked affiliates from signing up for new accounts – even if they try to mask who they are. Sometime affiliates try to pass themselves off as customers by using stolen credit cards to pay for products. Not with Kount. We link these and stop this type of scam, as well.
I want to pay commissions fast to keep affiliates happy but I get burned with chargebacks when a sale turns out to be fraudulent. Does Kount work fast enough to protect me from paying commissions on fraudulent orders?
Yes. Kount’s patented process and technologies work in an average of just 300 milliseconds. That means you won’t slow down the checkout or download process and can still minimize fraud losses.
I use a service that has a database of bad affiliates. Why would I need Kount?
Databases and lists of known fraudsters can be helpful, but with today’s technology fraudsters have become more sophisticated, smarter and better networked than ever before. Because many affiliate fraud cyber gangs hit a network and are gone in a matter of hours, the only way to stop today’s affiliate fraudster is with technology that works in real time at speeds below a second. Kount responds in an average of just 300 milliseconds, staying ahead of fraudsters and protecting your network.
Can Kount review transactions from affiliates anywhere in the world?
Kount’s global reach tracks affiliate fraudsters wherever they try to hide. Kount has reviewed transactions from millions of legitimate and fraudulent affiliates worldwide. Our platform uses several technologies, combines hundreds of data elements and analyzes them in a fraction of a second so you know right away if the sale, lead or download is legitimate – before you lose valuable time and money.
