Verifi's Chris Marchand and Lisa Tennant Set to Speak at DRF 2015

Will Discuss Chargeback Solutions at Industry-Leading Conference

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2015) - Verifi, Inc., the leading provider of payment and risk management solutions for card-not-present merchants, announced that Chris Marchand, Vice President of Business Development and Lisa Tennant, Vice President of Business Operations, will speak at DRF 2015 in Minneapolis from August 3 to 5.

In 2013, merchants incurred more costs, with each dollar of fraud costing them $3.08, compared to $2.79 the year before.[1] To help DRF 2015 attendees understand how to combat fraud so it doesn't negatively impact their bottom lines, Marchand will be part of a panel discussing the topic "Managing the Growing Chargeback Problem Before it Manages You." During the session, attendees will learn about the tools available that facilitate better merchant and Issuer collaboration, help them more efficiently and effectively lower fraud and non-fraud chargebacks, and strike the balance between retaining customers and fostering healthier bottom lines.

Additional members of this panel include well known merchants who will share their past experiences, the lessons they learned throughout the fraud prevention process and benefits they've seen since implementing comprehensive payment risk management tools.

"Chargebacks cost merchants billions of dollars every year, much of which can be prevented or at least disputed in the case of unwarranted chargebacks that do occur. We hope to educate DRF attendees about some of the tools they can use to improve their own internal total chargeback management system or find a way to augment what they're doing in-house to positively impact revenues," said Marchand.

No chargeback is the same. There are always different circumstances surrounding each and every chargeback, and navigating those nuances can significantly impact a company's results and bottom lines. Tennant will be part of a panel discussing the topic "Mastering Chargeback Responses and Representments," aimed at giving attendees insight and meaning behind those complex reason codes as well as tips on how to create a successful chargeback representment strategy.

"Knowledge is key to combating chargebacks and I look forward to speaking with DRF attendees on how to effectively assess their risk management options. We hope attendees will take away useful tips and best practices on how they can apply and supplement their own risk mitigation efforts," said Tennant.
