Nuvei guarantees to do its best to detect and prevent fraud in real-time and offline, but at the end of the day, the Nuvei platform is a decision support system, and your cooperation and actions are crucial to secure your processing account in the long term.
The purpose of this guide is to provide you with a smooth onboarding process that makes you aware of the risks involved in card-not-present (CNP) processing, as well as Nuvi’s products and services built from years of experience with mitigating risks.
The guide provides an overview of common terminology and regulations and describes your initial fraud screening profile that was customized for you during your onboarding process. Your initial profile detailed in this guide might differ according to the rules compatibility/efficiency and emerging fraud trends.
