Best Fraud Detection Extensions For Your Magento 2 Store

7 min readNov 20


Fraud in the e-commerce ecosystem has always been a serious issue. As per a report by Statista, online retailers across the globe suffered a total loss of $41 billion due to payment fraud in 2022.

There are multiple reasons for these frauds, and the banks are always not liable for the customers to recover these fraud amounts. As an e-commerce retailer, it is a highly important issue to consider as in case of a fraudulent transaction, you are liable to pay the mandatory credit card charges that need to be reversed. Thus you need to find e-commerce frauds and prevent them from occurring in your store. Finding and preventing fraud is the key to protecting the financial health of your e-commerce business.
