If you operate in the subscription business model, you’re no stranger to high fraud and chargeback rates. 90% of our subscription clients had repeatedly experienced excessive risk metrics at some point—up to 8% in some cases— so the problem is pervasive.

In the meantime, if you fail to lower your risk metrics within a couple of months, the losses you bear will keep growing, leading to serious penalties and payment restrictions. To help you locate and address this problem, we’ve prepared this concise and actionable checklist.
