3dcart and Kount Team to Protect Merchants from Fraud28-Mar-2013
TAMARAC, FL and BOISE, ID – Ecommerce software provider 3dcart now features a simple integration with Kount, a comprehensive risk management and fraud protection service that helps merchants keep their brand and income safer. Adding Kount also gives 3dcart merchants the freedom to add products and expand into geographic locations they once thought too risky.
The onus is on the merchant when a fraudster uses stolen credentials to make a purchase. When fraud happens, merchants typically risk the cost of the purchase, the loss of the product, a penalty from the bank and major fees from credit card companies.
With a fraud protection service like Kount, 3dcart merchants get an incredibly accurate way to stop fraud before it occurs. Each order processed through 3dcart feeds into the Kount system, where the service’s statistical and behavioral modeling team with artificial intelligence features to warn merchants when orders have a high likelihood of fraudulence.
“Adding Kount is a powerful way to bolster security for your store, protecting both your brand and your revenue stream,” said 3dcart CEO Gonzalo Gil. “We’ve made it easy for merchants to sign up and get started in very little time.”
Kount offers 3dcart merchants two key benefits:
- Reduce fraud risk: Kount helps stop fraud before it occurs, protecting the merchant from incurring associated costs and damage to its brand. In some cases, a strong fraud protection system can save hundreds of thousands of dollars that might have been spent cleaning up messes.
- Expand into new areas: 3dcart merchants previously apprehensive of the risk associated with selling a specific product or expanding into a specific market reduce the risk involved. This can lead to more revenue and significant business growth.
Kount is the latest in a long line of software partner integrations for 3dcart. It complements the software suite’s built-in security features, including McAfee Secure, FraudWatch, data backups and PCI compliant servers.
