Fraud Protection Is Always Included
What are some of the most common types of fraud that impact SaaS and software companies? Fraud comes in a variety of forms. Identity theft can cause fraudulent transactions using stolen personal information. Friendly fraud occurs when a customer initiates a chargeback even though they received the goods or services they purchased. Affiliate fraud can occur when partners submit fraudulent transactions. Regardless of its form, FastSpring handles all types of fraud to ensure your online store is secure.
