Commitment, creativity, flexibility and agility allied with in-depth knowledge of fraud. Clearsale is a leader in fraud management, born in Brazil, were we hold more than 85% market share. Clearsale has more than 15 years experience, more than 700 employees and more than 1,900 clients, such as Chanel, Kate Spade, Walmart, Staples and Sony.
Because of the nature of the market the Company was born in, considered one of the riskiest in the world, we have had to continuously adapt to be able to effectively fight and prevent Card Not Present fraud.
We offer a 100% chargeback guarantee and a fully outsourced fraud management solution. We give you the final decision: (a) to sell – the order has a minimum risk of becoming a chargeback or (b) do not sell – we already checked the order and know that that order is a fraudulent one.
As no order is automatically turned down, these orders have to be analyzed by people with special skills and training to detect subtle details to avoid turning down good customers.
We charge a fixed % only for approved transactions, regardless of whether the decision was automatic or not. The more orders we approve and the lower our client’s chargebacks, the more Clearsale benefits. We also have an incentive to increase our instant decisions, since this improves our cost structure and the buying experience of our customer’s clients.
More than offering tools, Clearsale is always looking for the optimum balance between chargeback losses, orders rejected and response time.
