Fraud and abuse challenges unfold for home goods merchants

Scaling operations while
combating fraud pressure

As sales increase, so too does fraud. Merchants are overextended and fraudsters are opportunistic – using the scaling traffic as a cover for their nefarious activities.

The CX vs
risk equation

Consumers expect faster shipping, diverse payment options and flexible returns – VIP experiences that expose merchants to increased risk. Manual review increases as a result, detracting from the very experiences retailers aim to protect.

Return abuse spikes
with generous policies

To avoid the reverse logistics nightmare of home goods returns, many retailers have a “donate or discard” return policy. Yet, these lenient policies are just as costly, with dishonest shoppers requesting illegitimate returns to furnish their homes for free.

Rising BNPL payment
options become risky

BNPL payments allow shoppers to purchase big ticket items like furniture & home goods without breaking the bank. Bad actors find this flexibility advantageous too – running scams with more ease and less investment upfront.

Receive instant decisions on orders with zero manual review

Signifyd utilizes identity and intent intelligence from the Signifyd Commerce Network to make real-time decisions on whether to accept or reject incoming orders. 

Signifyd has the ability to identify patterns of fraudulent activity, including more difficult to detect cases of BOPIS and curbside pickup fraud, by analyzing orders against a database of vast variables.

Automate curbside and delivery fulfillment risk‑free

On any chargeback claim that was Signifyd approved, merchants receive a refund within 48 hours, including shipping and other fees.

Mitigate return abuse while streamlining refunds for good returners

Signifyd provides risk scores and recommended actions on incoming return requests to protect your business from the most common refund scams faced by home goods retailers – such as opportunistic shoppers taking advantage of “keep/donate product on refund” return policies to walk away with free products.

Equip your customer support team with the insight they need to spot dishonest INR and SNAD refund requests and save on reverse logistic expenses by blocking return fraud outright.

Acquire loyal shoppers and a competitive advantage with seamless shopping experiences

The State of Home Goods

Since the pandemic, the home goods spending surge has begun to settle as shoppers are equally split between spending more or less on home goods.


In order to re-energize spending, home goods merchants have found unique opportunities with customers who have recently begun making purchases with them. As the influx in new shoppers rises, retailers have the opportunity to increase market share and replace customers lost to churn.
