Ai Video: Why mobile orders are risky?

28th May, 2019

Merchants, including ones from the travel e-commerce sector, need to diligently assess their respective mobile-order fraud-review systems.

According to Riskified, the behaviour of consumers when they shop via mobile and what makes such devices risky has to be ascertained. If not then merchants would continue to grapple with the highest rate of cart abandonment during the checkout process and above-average false-decline rates when compared to other shopping channels.

Sophia Miller, Business Development Manager, Riskified, who was recently in Brighton, UK for Ai’s ATPS (13th ATPS Worldwide Event), underlined that nature of users, the kind of transactions, unsuited fraud review measures, and the device being ATO or account takeover friendly make mobile risky.

For instance, Sophia highlighted that relatively younger travellers are more likely to order travel products using mobile devices, and tickets booked by this audience are 3.5 times more likely to result in a chargeback. She also shared that last minute travel orders are riskier plus mobile orders provide data points that don’t exist in desktop orders (and vice versa). “Fraud measures that are not device-sensitive can lead to 50% drop off rates,” indicated Sophia. As for ATO, she mentioned that mobile devices tend to contain all account, payment information and rewards and mobile apps are a “fraudster’s gold mine”.
