For over seventeen years, Build.com has provided their customers with the lighting, plumbing, flooring, and appliances they need to get the job done. As the second largest online home improvement retailer, they’ve become a trusted name among DIYers and professional contractors alike. To keep that trust, Build.com’s fraud prevention team works hard to make sure their customers get their orders quickly while shutting out bad actors.
From order fraud and chargebacks to verifying internal credit card applications that have gone through their third-party issuers, the fraud review team is kept busy reviewing approximately 1% of all the monthly transactions. Some things that are common red flags in other industries, such as goods being sent to an address not affiliated with the cardholder, are just part of the day’s work at Build.com, where contractors often purchase items to be shipped to a client’s address. Quickly verifying these trickier details means the Build.com fraud team can get orders shipped fast and keep their customers’ jobs on schedule.
