Safeguard revenue and optimize operations with anti-fraud workflows

Merchants face revenue loss and added expenses due to abuse of return policies, including the return of used items, empty boxes, or incorrect products. These issues can be hard to detect beforehand, resulting in extended processing times.

 With AfterShip's anti-fraud solution, you can safeguard your revenue and reduce operational costs by staying one step ahead of returns scams. Our automated workflows enable timely anti-fraud inspections and trigger actions to mitigate policy abuse. When a suspicious request is detected, the system flags it or adds the customer to a blocklist. Seamless integration with AI-powered fraud detection and 3PL partners ensures comprehensive monitoring for potential fraud incidents from checkout to return.

How Aetrex stopped returns policy abuse using anti-fraud workflows

"We've noticed some customers trying to game our returns policy. AfterShip Returns has supported us in addressing fraud with automated blocklists, flagging suspicious orders, and not auto-generating return labels."

Auto-identify potential fraud by analyzing shopper behaviors

By automatically analyzing shopper behavior, you can uncover patterns and anomalies indicating fraud, such as 'wardrobing' and 'empty box' returns. 

 Track the number of return requests, specific reasons for returns, and item tags used by customers over a defined period. Then, take your analysis further by identifying weight discrepancies between returned parcels and original items, and evaluate the timeline between the first return shipment checkpoint and the return request or approval date.
