The Merchant Risk Council (MRC), Cybersource, and Verifi


The Merchant Risk Council (MRC), Cybersource, and Verifi present the results of the 2022 Global Fraud and Payments Survey in an educational report that conveys transparent and unbiased research. This report is based on a survey of MRC and non-MRC merchants from around the globe, who were asked about their eCommerce fraud and payments practices. The survey sample included a diverse mix of small businesses (SMBs), mid-market, and enterprise merchants, representing organizations based throughout the North American, European, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Latin American (LATAM) regions. The research was conducted in November and December of 2021.

The survey results provide the MRC merchant community with the latest industry fraud data and fraud management methods used by their peers, along with a robust set of performance benchmarks that members can use to help optimize their fraud management and prevention practices. In addition, the survey delves into today’s rapidly changing payments landscape to examine the range of different payment acceptance, management, and partnership practices merchants are deploying, globally and across key subsegments, as well as the reasons why they are adopting these payment strategies and tactics in the current commercial environment.
