Average order value (AOV)

With various economic headwinds including rising prices and supply chain constraints, average order value (AOV)
can act as barometer for consumer behavior. Will consumers spend big early or wait until peak sales?

YoY AOV change

As we drill into AOV, we can plot the proportion of spend and order count that fall in each range of AOV. Shifts in the
proportion of order and spend can highlight shifts in consumer confidence or spending power. For instance, a shift to
more lower value transactions may highlight a curtailing of spending this holiday season.

“Friendly fraud” is defined as fraud committed by the consumer and rightful cardholder, as opposed to "criminal fraud"
committed by aprofessional fraudster with stolen credentials. The charts below examine the proportion of all chargeback
claims that can be classified as friendly fraud. Time will tell if more claims will be generated by professional
fraud rings this holiday season or if tough economic times will continue to inspire more friendly fraud.
