Frequently Asked Questions

I use 3D Secure but it seems to slow down approvals and gets too many issuer declines, what can Kount do to help with this?
3D Secure was not developed for speed or optimal acceptance of good transactions. And, while it is required for regulatory compliance in some regions around the world, it can be a conversion killer in other regions. Game companies are generally global in scope and need to have a solution that does not require a 3D Secure approach. We have several clients that show better results using Kount as their fraud mitigation solution than 3D Secure tools. See Jagex case study.
We have developed an in-house fraud system, why would I need Kount?
Many game companies have sophisticated models for managing fraud built with internal resources. This can be a good stop-gap solution initially, but most companies soon find the resources needed to enhance and maintain the system to keep ahead of fraudsters can be scarce. This also results in a reactive strategy rather than a proactive approach. Kount has a proven track record of working with in-house fraud systems to replicate current models, rule sets, etc., and improve on them without placing demands on internal resources. Our enterprise fraud engine draws on millions of transactions in the online game space and helps us react faster than in-house systems alone.
We can often detect “bad actors” in our system, banish them and delete their account but it is difficult to keep them out, can Kount help?
Keeping good customers “paying and playing” is critical to online game companies. When a player has been flagged as a “bad actor” or disruptive to other players, whether that includes payment fraud, new account creation, account takeover or other behavior that takes away from good players experience, you want them off the network. Kount can help permanently block these players from gaining repeat access, reducing the chance of financial loss and good customers leaving.
We use our own virtual currency as well as other standard payment methods for subscriptions, in game purchases, etc., is the Kount system still effective in this environment?
Absolutely. Kount works with any payment type (both real and virtual), from any platform and from anywhere in the world.
Reducing fraud is important, but if it slows down access or game play it may be worse that no fraud detection at all, right?
Players expect to play, now. They don’t want to wait or be given special instructions before they are allowed to play or purchase. Kount responds to transaction information in an average of just 300 milliseconds, often faster than the bank's approval, so there is no delay in play.
