Play it safe: The Appcharge Approach to Risk Mitigation
As game developers, we pour our hearts and souls into creating captivating experiences, while the risk of fraud and fraudulent chargebacks is always lurking in the shadows. The need for a robust risk mitigation strategy has never been more crucial.
In this article, we’ll delve into why risk mitigation is paramount for mobile game developers and explore how the Appcharge platform empowers you to safeguard your transactions effectively.
At the heart of Appcharge’s risk mitigation strategy lies the Fraud Score. Every transaction passing through our platform is meticulously evaluated and assigned a fraud score. This score serves as an initial assessment of the transaction’s risk level.
But how is this score calculated? It’s a blend of cutting-edge algorithms and historical data analysis. We consider various factors, such as transaction history, user behavior, and payment method, to assign a score that reflects the likelihood of fraudulent activity.
Transactions with high fraud scores aren’t dismissed outright. Instead, they are flagged for further review. We understand that false positives can be costly, so our approach is not overly cautious. Instead, it’s calculated and precise.
In our commitment to excellence, Appcharge collaborates with third-party anti-fraud software of the highest standards. This partnership ensures that our fraud detection capabilities are at the forefront of industry security. Your peace of mind is our priority.
Blacklisting Serial Fraudsters
At Appcharge, we have zero tolerance for serial fraudsters. Our platform blacklists individuals with a history of fraudulent activities across all games, creating a robust shield against repeat offenders.
Machine Learning Customization
Our machine learning capabilities allow you to define custom rules based on your unique business goals. Alternatively, you can opt for our recommended optimal settings, harnessing the power of AI to protect your transactions.
Optimized Manual Review
Appcharge streamlines the manual review process. We provide a centralized view of all flagged transactions, accompanied by rich contextual data explaining why each transaction was flagged for review. This ensures that your team can efficiently evaluate and address any concerns.
Extra Authentication for High-Risk Transactions
We understand the delicate balance between security and user experience. Appcharge applies extra authentication measures to high-risk transactions, without compromising your conversion rates. This targeted approach ensures that only transactions with elevated risk receive additional scrutiny.
Multiple Payment Methods
Offering multiple payment methods minimizes risk by adding layers of security and verification, making it harder for fraudsters to exploit vulnerabilities. Digital wallets require extra customer verification, such as biometrics or passcodes, while bank debits add an additional layer of security by verifying account ownership. By providing these secure payment options, Appcharge ensures not only a smooth user experience but also a significant reduction in the risk of fraud, safeguarding both your revenue and player trust.
