How Magento Faces Ecommerce Fraud Problems

A growing concern of online fraudulent behavior has cost a number of businesses a huge amount of money. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) in the Global Fraud Study 2014, organizations lose a median of 5% in their revenues annually due to fraud. Globally, this translates to $3.7 trillion losses.

Fraud is not only prevalent among independent online shops but also among retailers that depend on ecommerce platforms such as Magento. Because fraud is a serious issue, security should be one of the most important part in any Magento development services.

Online Fraud Issues

Magento is the current leading platform that deals with open commerce innovation. They are globally recognized and trusted in the e-commerce community. For years, they have collated data that give a glimpse of how bad fraud is costing many businesses. Here is a summarized list of points about online fraud:


  • Fraud losses have risen to an average of 8 percent since 2016.


It seems like constant data leaks have aided in the rise of money loss among businesses. Why? They are giving criminals a solid foothold for fraudulent behavior.


  • Digital retailers become their own worst enemy.


Stronger safeguards in their online stores have led to costly false declines. There are orders that are legitimate but are not shipped due to being incorrectly flagged as fraudulent.


  • E-commerce merchants lost up to $8.6 billion due to false declines.


Many incidents relating to false declines have occurred due to the premature course of setting up tougher security.


  • Due to false declines, negative feedback from customers lead to more loss of money.


Lee Hadsock, Head of Partner Development at Signifyd, says, “I can’t really think of a much worse customer experience than getting the buyer all the way to check out and then you don’t let them complete the purchase.”
