Humboldt Merchant Services

No fraud allowed!

As Internet shopping options expand with more and more ecommerce merchants coming online each day, and the business world continues to diversify POS options, the capability of the payment fraudster also changes. These crafty individuals and mastermind groups are always looking for new ways to hack into an unsuspecting company’s payment system to silently siphon monies or private cardholder information.

While any merchant should be concerned about protection against fraud, the merchants in business classes that are more susceptible to fraud and higher chargeback ratios have to be even more vigilant. This is a requirement that often leads these business owners on a search for a savvy account representative that can guide them to implementation of an optimal payment processing setup that includes smart fraud monitoring tools.

If you are one of these savvy sales professionals working to stay up on how to support hard-to-board merchants, you know firsthand, the importance of setting them up with the most relevant and current fraud management tools. However, it can also be a challenge to keep track of industry-wide updates and stay in sync with which tools are ahead of the ever-changing threat landscape. This is one reason it is critical to establish a selling relationship with a well regarded acquiring partner that also specializes in serving these unique merchant types.

Trust the experts

“Since 1992, Humboldt Merchant Services has focused on supporting merchants that can’t always be served by mainstream payment service providers,” said Adam McDonald, President of Humboldt Merchant Services. “We know these business models require more attention than typical retail accounts and that includes protecting them with the most robust fraud management systems available at all times.”

In the spirit of serving these merchants with the best possible support model, HBMS is also committed to ensuring customers have access to the most air tight and innovative fraud management solutions available. Each Humboldt merchant has direct access to Fraudcast, the HBMS proprietary fraud and chargeback reduction platform.

“A fraud attack or series of unwarranted chargebacks can seriously impact a merchant’s bottom line,” continued McDonald. “With Fraudcast, every Humboldt sales partner is able to confidently assure their customers will have full visibility of all account activity, as well as rock solid fraud protection and an easy to understand reporting interface.”

The devil is in the details
