Best flexible option in the market nowadays...

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: It can be improved, the support team take too much time attending customer requirements, and regarding the reporting, one instead focusing on the actionable data invest too much time wrangling with the data to get the information we need (asking via email for Sift asciende support, yes is frustrating). But despite these drawbacks, their Machine Learning approach is the best on the market as of today.

Pros:

Workflows functionality (is like the main actions an user can perform while inside our services platform) and Rules functionality (inside each Workflow one can set high number of options and criteria to execute actions (Blocking, Reviewing, etc.) these two features bring what we need in order to map fraudsters and behaviors alike, while at the same time they Machine Learning engine learns from us! Making everything we create inside the tools a lesson learn and then we can focus on the other kind of attacks, relying on the tool.

Cons:

The reporting is so basic it contrast with the high functionality and advanced Machine Learning tool it needs to be improved. Here is where tools like Ravelin excel Sift Science by far!.

A must-have solution for merchants addressing scalability.

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: We began using Chargeback this year and have seen a positive ROI from Real-time Resolution alone. Our win rate has improved and we are able to postpone adding headcount because of the speed with which the existing team can respond to disputes. As a fraud manager with years in the space, this is one of the most elegant and efficient solutions I've used.

Pros:

Speed, ease of use, the ability to copy and paste screenshots into compelling evidence. For a merchant that fields 200x disputes weekly, an automated solution is a must.

Cons:

Support for American Express, and alternative payment methods (like PayPal) is limited.
