State of Fraud: Why consumers blame merchants for fraud

For merchants, thriving in the current e-commerce environment involves a series of seemingly impossible feats. Ever-increasing expectations mean consumers want a multitude of fulfillment options and a purchase journey that is quick, safe, and easy... at any time... and on any device. To compete, merchants have to approve more orders, provide an excellent experience and operate more efficiently. But to truly succeed, they must also fend off the costly threats of fraud, account takeovers, and false declines. 

To help merchants decode the American shopper, Riskified surveyed 5,000 US consumers across all demographic, geographic, and financial categories. We asked them what they really want, how they really shop, and, most importantly, what inspires trust from merchants. In this webinar, we will delve into their responses and add our own data-driven insights about how customers' perceptions of fraud can affect merchants in unexpected ways. 

You will learn:

  • Device preferences and shopping behaviors to keep in mind when evaluating orders
  • How unnecessary friction and inaccurate decisions hurt the customer experience and limit lifetime value (LTV)
  • What makes a motivated shopper abandon their cart
  • How fraud affects customer perceptions and behaviors
