How Ravelin prevents payment fraud for PSPs

Ravelin’s payment fraud product for payment service providers aims to manage fraud at scale for a collection of small-to-medium sized businesses.

What is payment fraud?

Online payment fraud is when a fraudster uses stolen card details to make purchases online. Fraudsters can buy large numbers of stolen card details on the dark web and then attempt to use them to make purchases.

Bad actors may use stolen credentials to get products or services for free themselves, or so that they can sell these goods or services for their own profit.

How Ravelin prevents payment fraud

To prevent payment fraud, you send us details about transactions and disputes using our API.

We will decide if we think the transaction is fraudulent, and return a recommendation as to whether you should continue processing it or not.
