The internet retailer’s fraud prevention guide

Online shopping has spiked in the last 5 years, crossing the trillion dollar threshold in 2012. Embracing the consumer preference for internet shopping, many new businesses are only available through the web. Yet a surprisingly low number of new merchants are taking measures to protect themselves from internet fraud.
