  • Fraud Protection Enhanced Through Click & Pledge Partnership with MaxMind.

    Blacksburg, VA – (September 28, 2009) – As part of an ambitious expansion of its software services and fraud protection for online credit card payments, Click & Pledge Chief Executive Officer Kamran Razvan announced today an API integration partnership with MaxMind, a leading provider of IP geolocation and fraud detection solutions to reduce risk of fraudulent web payments.

    With the inclusion of MaxMind reports as a default response from our API, developers will determine the legitimacy of a transaction based on the many factors presented in the report. “We believe this is a unique integration which adds great value for developers and programmers designing and implementing applications on our Payment-As-A-Service (PaaS) platform,” Razvan said. “The combination of fraud detection and restrictions on state and country allows customers to easily set a wider scope of conditions that will automatically decline payments,” he added.

    “We look forward to working more closely with Click & Pledge and providing their customers with additional tools to combat fraud,” said Ed Lin, business development manager of MaxMind. “The combination of Click & Pledge’s expertise in fund raising software as a service and our expertise in fraud screening will address key challenges facing many organizations looking to raise money online safely and effectively.”

    “Security of our financial transactions and data protection is always a top priority at Click & Pledge,” Razvan explained. “Integration of our Payment-as-a-Service platform with MaxMind will further enhance our fraud screening algorithm for our API. The MaxMind analysis has been part of the Click & Pledge system for over two years. It complements and strengthens our internal fraud algorithm. We are pleased to offer the added service to developers & programmers at no cost,” Razvan explained. MaxMind joins others third-party integration partners like, SugarCRM, MailChimp and Constant Contact, among others.

    MaxMind has an approach to fraud screening that expands and elevates our current level of e-commerce protection, Razvan said. The MaxMind tools help to determine if the purchaser is the legitimate credit card holder. MaxMind analysis identifies traits and patterns that are associated with fraudulent orders and detects suspect orders before they are placed.
