Worldpay 2016 Fraud Trends Report


July 06, 2016


Worldpay released its Fraud Trends 2016 report, with the latest perspectives on international eCommerce fraud

The global eCommerce market will be worth a staggering US $2.4 trillion by 2019. In short, online payment fraud is a bigger challenge than ever.

Worldpay asked customers their view on four key areas such as mobile, the role of data, the use of social media to fight fraud and the view on the future of fraud.

The Worldpay Fraud Trends 2016 report shows that:

  1. Most merchants are treating mobile transactions the same as any other, and not assessing them differently for fraud risk.
  2. Merchants are not sharing data effectively with their fraud teams, and more information could help them make much richer decisions.
  3. Social media is heavily used in manual review and is an area of significant potential.
  4. Merchants know that the future will be about more data and more automation of fraud assessment.
