Kount Fraud Prevention Solution

Monthly service fee is required to use the Kount extension. Contact Kount to discuss your needs & pricing.

Online Merchants Are at Risk!
Every online merchant runs the risk of criminals infiltrating their site and making fraudulent transactions. That cost merchants money, time and resources. Purchases, free trials, new accounts, downloads, etc., are all areas that fraudsters like to target. Whether you’re selling digital goods or shippable items criminal networks are looking to steal from unprotected sites.

Fraud takes a bite out of bottom-line profits. Visa® reports the top reason for charge backs is fraudulent transactions. Kount reduces losses due to fraud dramatically, increases revenue and protects you while expanding your business faster than you might think.

Since every online merchant is 100% responsible for fraudulent transactions, it doesn’t take much to really hurt the bottom line.

Fraud Prevention Made Simple
KOUNT MAKES IT EASY to stop fraud and gives merchants the opportunity to grow revenue without worry. The Kount Fraud Prevention Solution is easy to implement and easy to use, so you can get back to business.

Sales vs. Fraud

Boost Sales, Beat Fraud
With Kount, merchants have the confidence to grow sales into new products, new regions and new industries. Many merchants see revenues rise after implementing Kount because they can accept orders that may have looked suspicious before. Accept more orders, from more people in more places with Kount.

What Are Kount Customers Saying?

Michael McClane, COO BodyBuilding.com (Read Full Case Study)


“It’s hard to put a price on staying in business. If we deny too many legitimate customers, we hurt our brand. On the other hand if we’re not careful and get on the wrong side of charge backs, that can be the end. Fortunately, we really don’t have to worry about that with Kount Complete.”
Tom Denig, Director, Risk Operations, ClickBank (Read Full Case Study)

Do you have a Magento 2 extension available?

If not, is it on your roadmap and when is it expected availability? Is there a workaround if extension is not currently available? Thanks, Alex

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by SFC Consulting

Kount Fraud Prevention Solution is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kount Fraud Prevention Software While Kount did not encompass Authorize directPost payment gateway, it did utilize Authorize's regular API and we were able to almost completely stop the fraud on our websites. We were above a 30% fraud rate and with the help of Kount's rules and VIP lists, we are at about a 3% fraud rate now. Awesome job Kount and thanks for the excellent customer and service support!
Date published: 2014-03-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kount is Useful, Extension is ... OK First let me say we run CE v 1.7.x (at time of install) and were looking for a Fraud Control Solution. We came across Kount and after speaking with the sales rep decided to move forward with installation. The cost is a bit extravagant. We agreed to $4k to execute the agreement and a min of $500/ month in "Risk Inquiries". We were promised the extension would work for admin orders taken over the phone as we saw an increase of fraud orders that were "called in". Unfortunately, the extension only works for online orders once installed. That is unless you transpose order info to the frontend of the website. So, Kount agreed to send us to a developer "Intellect Labs" for customization.. This cost $2500 and took a total of 10 days to complete (even though the owner said it would take "a couple hours" in the initial contact email). Once properly setup (rules, whitelists and blacklists), Kount's system is stellar. It stops orders which are marginal so they can be reviewed manually. Additionally it makes it easy to refund/cancel those orders by simply declining those orders in Kount. The extension could be better if it were a deeper integration where you didn't need to go to Kount's site. Basically, this extension only communicates with kount's platform. All order memo's and status changes carry over to Magento, but need to be made in Kount's interface. Now when an update comes out, you need to customize the extension all over again. I keep telling myself this is an investment, but it feels like Intellect Labs is gouging. Maybe Kount can have SFC consulting build the "Admin Order" functionality into the extension.
