The Challenge The Challenge

Prior to partnering with Riskified, Banca Sella provided its merchants with a rules-based fraud detection platform, but the Group knew they needed to find a new way to scale their growing business; to address eCommerce fraud in a scalable way that would facilitate their merchants’ bottom line. They searched for a solution that could complement the integrity of the shopping experience that the bank’s merchants wished for their end customers.

Choosing a Solution Choosing a Solution

Banca Sella sought a streamlined approach that would not require maintenance and management resources. They also wanted an alternative to the 3-D Secure protocol, to improve conversion rates and eliminate friction. Finally, they favored a solution they could roll out with ease to new merchants. Banca Sella partnered with Riskified in 2016, implementing a single, end-to-end solution for each of their individual online stores, across verticals and geographies. Riskified provided Banca Sella’s merchants with a protective shield against fraud attacks, and relieved them of the need for high-friction verification methods. They saw an immediate decline in drop-off rates and an upturn in sales. Another advantage was the smooth and straightforward integration process. By simply adding an icon to the Gestpay portal, Banca Sella’s merchants can access order data. Two years on, more and more Banca Sella merchants are protected by Riskified.
