Card-not-present fraud will cost retailers US$130 billion

Increasingly complex card-not-present fraud will cost retailers US$130 billion globally in digital sales over the next five years.

A Juniper Research study predicts that retailers’ slow pace in keeping up with new fraud prevention requirements will allow cybercriminal practices to become more widespread as more and more consumers shop online. It observes that established point-of-sale vendors will need to move towards mobile POS technology in order to expand their reach into fresh markets and reduce their exposure to card-not-present fraud.

“A layered fraud detection and prevention (FDP) solution naturally helps directly preventing fraud, but it also offers major gains in terms of recovering potentially lost revenue through false positives,” said the report’s author Steffen Sorrell. “This is something about which retailers remain undereducated, and has allowed fraudsters to capitalise on relatively low FDP spend”.

An implication of the Juniper research is that a low understanding of FDP investment return is causing the low uptake of the technology. the report anticipates digital payment players will be spending $9.6 billion annually on FDP solutions by 2023.

    At Australian Payments Network, we have been working with retailers on a framework for reducing the level of card-not-present fraud in Australia, which also builds consumer trust and supports continued growth in e-commerce. Our work involved extensive consultation in 2018 with retailers, as well as financial institutions, the Reserve Bank of Australia, card schemes, payment gateways and payment service providers. The framework is now final (subject to legal review) and we are now consulting on the implementation timeline - Q2 2019 is proposed as a starting point – and would again welcome feedback from retailers. If you would like to know more, or would like to provide feedback on the timeline, please contact us at mitigateCNPfraud@auspaynet.com.au.
