The Company

Karity.com designs, manufactures, and sells professional-grade cosmetic products directly to consumers through its online store. Its mission is to provide customers with high-quality, luxury cosmetics and makeup tools at affordable prices. To date, Karity has sold over 3 million units of its uniquely developed beauty aids.

The Challenge

Karity offers highly sought after, limited-edition products that sell out quickly. But they faced a major obstacle: Their eyeshadow palettes were often resold on third-party marketplaces such as eBay, enticing fraudsters to buy those items with stolen cards and resell the goods quickly.

Karity had been using a fraud prevention product that was native to their payment gateway on their Magento store that worked satisfactorily. When Karity moved their store to Shopify, they initially chose Shopify’s Fraud Filter as a first line of defense against fraud. Unfortunately, the software lacked precision and routinely declined legitimate transactions, resulting in weekly calls from irritated customers regarding their unnecessarily canceled orders. Plus, despite the app’s overzealous fraud screening, Karity was still getting chargebacks every month.

To optimize Shopify’s Fraud Filter results, Karity began manually reviewing all orders totaling $100 or more, those with billing and shipping mismatches, as well as any order with expedited shipping. Karity found themselves manually reviewing 10% of their orders, of which 95% were identified as legitimate. With an extremely loyal fanbase, every time Karity rolled out a new product, its sales exploded. This caused extreme pressure on the single individual tasked with manually reviewing orders. Orders with expedited shipping got stuck in the review queue, which snowballed into additional customer service inquiries, upset customers and an overwhelmed staff. Karity realized that in order to grow their business, they needed a more efficient approach to fraud prevention.

The Solution

After extensive research on the Shopify app store, Karity chose NoFraud because of its positive customer reviews and affordable pricing.

NoFraud’s automated system integrated easily with Karity’s store and instantly began identifying and canceling their fraudulent transactions. Legitimate orders were correctly identified and processed, immediately increasing sales. The efficacy of NoFraud’s software enabled Karity to shift from auto-approving only 90% of its orders to 99.7% of its orders.

“The morning after we started selling a heavily promoted new product and sales skyrocket and I saw how many orders were held up in the fraud review queue, I quickly realized that in order to scale, we needed a more automated solution. NoFraud had been instrumental in assisting Karity to expand. Our orders are processed swiftly and without fear of fraud chargebacks.”

Customer Testimonials

Praise From Some of Our
Successful Customers

“5 stars across the board! We switched to NoFraud a year ago and not only did my approval rate increase drastically but pricing was also a lot more competitive. The integration is seamless and literally worked out of the box with zero changes to our current workflow.”
“NoFraud has been absolutely amazing. Before NoFraud, we were suffering from a barrage of fraud attempts, which resulted in tens of thousands of dollars of chargebacks. Once you install this app, fraudsters will give up hope. I think it’s a no-brainer.”
“Implementing NoFraud has vastly improved our business operations, not only by significantly reducing chargebacks and false positives, but by turning our inefficient fraud prevention process into a simple pass/fail decision that saves us loads of time and stress.”
“This is some of the best money we have ever spent. Integrating the app was quick and smooth, the support is fantastic and far superior to the service offered by some of their competitors. Our fraudulent orders have dropped by almost 60% since integrating NoFraud as compared to Signifyd and all orders that are charged-back are quickly reimbursed.”
“I switched to NoFraud from another guaranteed fraud prevention provider. My approval rate improved, pricing was more competitive, NoFraud customer support is superb and the user interface is intuitive and informative. My only regret is that I did not make the change sooner.”

“Normally not one to write reviews but absolutely must applaud NoFraud. I switched over from a big name competitor that dropped the ball huge on support. I’ve had no such issues with NoFraud — their support agents has been super responsive. The sales folks answered my every detailed question — even digging into API documentation. Their onboarding team was top notch. I was up and running super quick! Very happy.”
“The NoFraud app is really easy to install and set up. NoFraud’s analysis has been much more effective than the standard default Shopify fraud analysis. It catches fraud missed by Shopify and passes orders that Shopify said were high risk. Best part is, you can contact NoFraud and speak with someone.”
“The team at NoFraud are amazing. They have been a strong partner against the fraudsters. Right before we signed up we were hit with several thousand dollars of Mule Fraud. The addition of this app has definitely saved us money. Worth every penny. I would totally recommend them.”
“We can’t say enough wonderful things about the team at NoFraud. They are extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. The peace of mind we get from knowing that they are handling the fraud check process is invaluable. NoFraud’s system consistently delivers accurate order ratings and recommendations.”

“NoFraud has been fantastic. We switched from Signifyd and haven’t looked back. Better rates, vastly simpler customer service, easier touch points for service/help, chargeback protection and filing on our behalf (this was huge — of the few chargebacks we’ve gotten, NoFraud takes care of them and we’re good to go!). Super fast verifications (if/when needed). Great staff. All in all, definitely recommend going with this app!”

“Excellent communication. Easy to use service. Available to resolve and questions or concerns that arise in a timely manner.”
“NoFraud’s ability to extend internationally is great since we have no experience or knowledge in international sales. Without NoFraud, we’d have to learn everything there is to know about fraud detection in another market.”
