Certified eCommerce Fraud Agent

Professional Distinction


Professionals certified as an eCommerce Fraud Agent have a strong understanding of how payment processing works for the Customer Not Present (CNP) channel, methods for validating and establishing trust in an identity and how to perform manual order verification risk reviews.

They have learned and been tested on the retention of both fundamental knowledge and specific techniques regarding payments, risk, and identity authentication and verification in the CNP channel. The training begins by establishing the basics of credit card processing for eCommerce to better understand the parties involved, the payment flow and the impact of chargebacks. Enrollees are taught then tested on the basics of eCommerce fraud to ensure a foundation level understanding of online fraud tactics, methods and motivations.


The eCommerce Fraud Agent Certification is intended for people who will be performing manual order reviews on orders a merchant does not want to auto-accept or auto-decline. Many merchants enroll every new order verification or review analyst in this training program to set a baseline of knowledge and provide consistent training and agent results.

Much of the material in the training program is great and useful information for merchants. A few of the courses, such as the Manual Review Tools course, provided a lot of practical and useful information for merchants – it covered different sources for manual look-ups and what to look for when using them.
