In our deals, we employ Kount to assess the degree of risk. For the most part, it's used to evaluate whether or not a transaction is fraudulent, in order to lessen the likelihood of a return and the associated cost of customer service. In order for our customer service representatives to assist customers in making secure transactions, it is completely integrated into our technological stack.
  • Monitoring and reporting.
  • It's a breeze to set up.
  • Execution was fast.
  • The design of the user interface.
  • UI tips that expand on what you're doing, so you can better understand what you're doing.
By now, the vast majority of payment gateways have implemented fraud prevention software like Kount. Contracting the solution directly and doing it faster and cheaper than other solutions on the market makes sense if you have several stores and/or sales.

Kount is used to determine risk in our transactions. It is used primarily to determine if a transaction is fraudulent or not, in order to reduce the overall risk of returns and lower the overall footprint of customer support operations. It is integrated fully into our technology stack, as well as in front of our customer support so that they can help users make safe purchases.
  • Easy to integrate
  • User interface
  • Fraud detection
  • Accuracy
  • Speed
  • Modification
Kount is well suited as a first way in determining fraudulent transactions. It works for what it is, however, Kount has problems with false positives, as there are many instances where customers were legitimate, but Kount was flagging them as being frauds.

We use Kount to validate all incoming ecommerce transactions on our 12 store fronts in 6 different countries. It allows us to quickly verify the payments and minimize the risk associated with the payments. Kount helps us by checking several parameters of the information provided by the client and crossing it with their own information.
  • Rule creation
  • Quick execution
  • Robust grading system
  • Alerts
  • Reports and monitoring
  • UI design
  • Tips inside the UI so it expands the info of what you are doing
Most payment gateways are already adding Kount or a similar fraud prevention software into their payment solution. If you have a lot of stores and/or have a lot of sales it just makes sense for you to contract the solution directly and do it faster and cheaper than other solutions in the market.

The business problem Kount addresses is fraud. We use Kount on our eCommerce fulfillment team to grade/score orders.
  • Fraud mitigation
  • Automates transaction decisions
  • Enhance customer insights
  • I do wish the Kount system had more offerings built in versus adding items a la carte
Kount is really great for our business. I really enjoy the automation with [decisions]. It's been helpful with reducing fraud and adding efficiency.

Kount powers Sertifi Advanced Fraud Tools in an effort to give our customers guidance on the potential risks they are incurring when receiving a credit card through our PCI compliant software. This incredible guidance and insight allows our customers to evaluate the risk and safety of transactions in an effort to prevent bad actors from accessing their services without potentially paying and deterring chargebacks. It is like they now have their own personal TSA agents like at the airport to review any transaction that leads to an alarm for their business.
  • Support--Always available to hop on a call and walk through the UI
  • Guidance--Always aim to have the key people that can lend their expertise
  • Advancements--Always sharing how we can use the system to evolve the solution further for our customers.
  • It's a lot of data to digest (not a bad thing!), so any way they can break it up into more concise/digestible bits, I would personally find beneficial.
Any business that is facing the challenge of fraudulent activity or fraud in general needs to get in touch with Kount. They have incredible solutions and in today's world where we see stories of chargeback fraud, friendly fraud, scams, etc., having a partner like this to help protect your bottom line is a must.
