In addition, while 94% of merchants consider friendly fraud to be a problem for their business, less than 30% are taking steps to combat it. This behaviour indicates that there is a knowledge gap preventing merchants from confidently combating fraudulently filed chargebacks.

Other headline stats include:

• Nearly a third of merchants experience difficulties contesting illegitimate chargebacks
