How to Leverage the Recurring Payment Trend

Posted on Apr 30, 2019
When looking at a way to expand your business offering, one way to do so is through subscription-based products and services offered through your website. A McKinsey study found that the subscription-based e-commerce market in the U.S. increased from $57 million in 2011 to $2.6 billion in 2016.

Posted on Mar 23, 2018

What Types of Businesses are Most Affected by Chargebacks?

Posted on Jul 18, 2017
Chargebacks are becoming one of the biggest payment challenges for businesses of all sizes today. While some chargebacks are completely legitimate, it turns out that fraudsters have figured out a way to get more free merchandise using this refund technique. This becomes especially true when it turns out that credit card issuers, like banks, often rule for the cardholder (or fraudster posing as the card holder). Although any business can fall victim to this type of fraud, there are some businesses that have been identified as being more likely to be affected. These businesses are then labeled high risk by credit card processing companies and must contend with higher fees or the inability to even get a merchant account.
