Austreme Verifi global reseller partnership

[Hong Kong, February 6,  2024] – Austreme, a leading acquirer risk solution provider today announces it has entered into a global reseller partnership agreement with Verifi, a Visa Solution.

Through their partnership, Austreme and Verifi will expand dispute management services into the Asia Pacific region with products such as Rapid Dispute Resolution (RDR) and Order Insight, creating opportunities to prevent and resolve pre-disputes before they escalate to chargebacks.

Order Insight prevents disputes by offering issuers and cardholders access to detailed purchase and order information from sellers through a global data-sharing network. By retrieving crucial billing information, Order Insight prevents disputes at the initial customer inquiry, significantly minimizing customer billing confusion and enhances the cardholder experience. Order Insight can also systematically deflect disputes confirmed to be first-party misuse, which is the #1 fraud attack experienced by merchants in 2023.

RDR empowers merchants to automatically resolve pre-dispute cases with participating issuers through a robust decision engine. By customizing alert rules set by the merchant, cardholder disputes can be resolved in real-time – lowering friction, heightened customer satisfaction and an overall reduction in chargebacks.

“We are excited to partner with Austreme to expand our post-purchase solutions coverage in the Asia Pacific market, and grow our network of participating merchants. Our products are a great complementary service to Austreme, providing enhanced risk management tools for merchants to reduce financial losses and remove unnecessary disputes from the payment ecosystem.” stated Karen Coffey, Global Head of Channel Partnerships for Verifi.
