What is Riskified’s business model?

Riskified is performance-based, meaning retailers are charged only for orders approved and guaranteed by our system. This ensures Riskified’s goals are aligned with yours – safely growing online revenues. We take responsibility for our decisions by covering every approved transaction with a full chargeback guarantee. This is coupled with an approval rate guarantee, under which Riskified commits to certain rate of approved orders out of the overall volume of orders submitted for fraud review.

What types of transactions does Riskified review and guarantee?

Riskified can review all card-not-present orders placed using a credit card, debit card, PayPal, Apple Pay, Alipay, Amazon Pay, and more. We manage payments in all currencies, from all channels – desktop, mobile, and phone orders of both tangible and digital goods. Orders placed with payment methods that cannot incur a chargeback should not be submitted to Riskified for review (e.g. Bitcoin, Cash on Delivery).

Which eCommerce platforms and integrations do you support?

Riskified is available to all merchants through our API Integration. We also have extensions available for the Magento and Demandware eCommerce platforms and one-click integration with Shopify.

How does Riskified’s pricing work?

We charge a percentage of the value of each approved transaction, dependant on sales volume and industry-specific risk profiles. To receive a custom quote, complete the form on our Pricing page.

How does the chargeback guarantee work? What does it cover?

We cover all chargebacks related to unauthorized card usage or stolen financial information. This includes the order amount, shipping costs, and Riskified’s approval fee. We do not cover chargebacks for reasons such as “item not received” or “item not as described,” as they are not related to unauthorized credit card usage.

How do you decide whether an order is fraudulent or not?

Riskified reviews every submitted order using machine learning models and proprietary analytical tools. Our algorithms consider data such as the customer details, proxy usage, IP and geolocation, device and browser fingerprinting, and behavioral analytics. This information is then cross-checked against millions of other orders to determine a risk profile, and decide whether to approve or decline.

How long does it take to decide an order?

Riskified reviews orders in real time and provides “approve” or “decline” decisions instantly.

How am I notified regarding Riskified’s decision?

Riskified sends decisions automatically to your notification endpoint. In the event of a “decline” decision, Riskified provides decision insights explaining what factors contributed to the decision. You can also search for a specific order in your Riskified account anytime.

Can Riskified prevent ATO attacks?

Riskified leverages advanced behavioral analytics and device fingerprinting capabilities to detect and preempt Account Takeover attacks. We collect a wide range of data points anytime a user logs in, updates an account, resets a password or uses loyalty points. Any discrepancies between standard behavior, devices used or geographical indicators will trigger an alert.

What tools are available for tracking and reporting Riskified data?

Merchants using Riskified gain access to our comprehensive, user-friendly web app which allows merchants to review performance KPIs in real time, track order populations, approval rates, chargeback rates and more. Filters can also be used to segment data based on multiple criteria (e.g. geographies, channels, device types, operating systems, and payment methods). All data is exportable, which makes reporting simple and efficient

Does your solution support expedited/same day shipping?

Riskified supports expedited and same-day business flows, as well as in-store pickup. This is enabled by our accurate, instant decisioning, which leaves merchants enough time to fulfill orders in due time.

Does Riskified reach out to my customers?

Riskified believes in a frictionless order review process to promote a smooth shopping journey, and therefore does not contact customers as part of the order review process. Our process is completely invisible to end customers and our analysis tools reach decisions without having to call, email or text customers.

How does Riskified’s machine learning differ from other machine learning solutions?

Riskfied’s machine learning models relieve merchants from having to engineer features, change thresholds, retrain models or invest in experimentation for optimization. Our models are customer-specific, and modular. Orders are assessed by the most relevant models, which makes learning more efficient – as the models only learn based on performance from similar industries, products, and geographies.
