Why iCAN?

iCAN4Consumers benefits not just merchants, but ALL participants in the Acquiring side of the payments industry. All of us who provide support to merchant businesses benefit when fraud and chargeback levels are kept within acceptable thresholds. For a merchant, reducing chargebacks and instances of fraud is vital in maintaining their merchant account and reducing the associated expense for their overall profitability and success!

Acquiring Institutions / Banks

The use of iCAN as part of an Acquirers ongoing strategy for managing merchant risk within their eCommerce portfolio is extremely beneficial as Acquiring banks are ultimately responsible to the card associations for the performance / behavior of their merchants for whom they have underwritten.
This means having an effective set of tools and policies in place to ensure that occurrences of fraud and chargebacks are kept well below association thresholds. This eliminates the need for both acquiring and merchant involvement with fraud / chargeback remediation programs and the associated fines and penalties.

Merchant Sales Organizations / Sales Agents

Sales organizations and agents also benefit from iCAN in that accounts will stay in good standing as it relates to fraud and chargeback levels imposed by the card associations as well as underwriting and monitoring requirements set forth by Acquiring institutions.

Merchant Businesses

iCAN4Consumers should be used by eCommerce merchants as a best practice for reducing chargeback levels and enhancing card acceptance in order to improve customer satisfaction, maximize business growth, increase revenue and keeping their merchant account in good standing with their Acquiring institution and the card associations!
iCAN helps merchants significantly reduce chargeback counts / ratios and will also assist in reducing fraud ratios by improving underwriting ahead of the sale and avoiding participation in card association remediation programs.
Member merchants of the iCAN network have an additional tool for not just addressing fraud and chargebacks, but for improving customer satisfaction and increasing credibility with consumers, their customers.
