Keep your business safe using credit card fraud prevention tools from eMerchant.
Credit card fraud causes billions of dollars in losses each year. Any merchant who accepts credit cards is susceptible, but ecommerce merchants are particularly at risk because they are not able to verify the physical card and/or the authorized user. That is why card-not-present transactions have a higher interchange rate.
