Machine Learning Fraud Engine


FastSpring uses machine learning to protect Sellers against fraudulent transactions.

FastSpring Sellers have always enjoyed the protection and security of the FastSpring fraud detection and management system.

Enhanced Fraud Detection and Management

Now partnered with Sift, FastSpring Risk Analysis tools are enhanced with the power of machine learning and AI to increase the accuracy of our fraudulent transaction identification.

As a Merchant of Record, FastSpring is committed to managing all fraud and risk activities on behalf of our Sellers so that you can focus on what you do best—building great digital products. That’s why we partner with industry leaders, like Sift, to ensure we seamlessly deliver accurate risk analysis for every transaction around the world. Our Sellers can be confident that their business is protected.

FastSpring now leverages data from Sift’s network of over 34,000 sites to identify risk with better accuracy. Using machine learning technology, this system constantly collects and analyzes millions of global fraud decisions every month to ensure that our fraud management system is getting smarter and more accurate over time.

Key Benefits:

  • Increased accuracy in fraud decisions

  • Stops bad actors before a transaction is even processed
