Riskified and Plaid to Enhance Risk Protection for ACH Bank Payments

Riskified (NYSE: RSKD), which claims to be a leader in ecommerce fraud and risk intelligence, today announced a partnership and integration with Plaid, the data network powering the digital financial ecosystem.

This partnership empowers online merchants, marketplaces, and trading platforms to approve ACH (Automatic Clearing House) payments with confidence, “safeguarding against fraud and the risk of insufficient funds.”

While ACH transactions have conventionally “been employed for direct deposits and routine debit withdrawals, their utility has extended to various ecommerce transactions including cryptocurrency, marketplaces, and high-value purchases of precious metals, artwork, and gift cards.”

Notably, ACH volumes witnessed “an increase of $1 trillion in 2022, marking the tenth successive year of growth, as highlighted by National Automated Clearinghouse Association (NACHA) statistics.”

The integration between the two companies “enhances Riskified’s existing ACH protection capability to shift fraud liability and protect against ACH ‘insufficient funds’ returns.”

Riskified’s platform complements Plaid’s Signal offering, “a transaction risk scoring engine that furnishes merchants with new data attributes to better assess the return risk of transactions.”

Kevin Sprake, Vice President of Global Channel Partnerships at Riskified, said:

“While ACH transactions play a pivotal role in the payments landscape, ensuring the integrity of these transactions can be challenging. In collaborating with Plaid, Riskified’s existing ACH protection capability is further improved with enriched data and enhanced accuracy, equipping merchants with more confidence to embrace ACH payments. Riskified remains dedicated to pioneering innovative approaches to promote ecommerce growth.”

Riskified’s award-winning machine learning platform protects hundreds of leading ecommerce enterprises “from card-not-present fraud and has increased payment acceptance rates for over a decade.”

The platform has been precisely calibrated to support bank payments, “harnessing Riskified’s vast global merchant network that encompasses more than 2.5 billion historical transactions, to accurately discern the key data attributes driving each purchase.”

In uniting Riskified’s offering with Plaid’s dynamic platform, the stage is set “to enable more merchants to offer secure, seamless ACH transactions for the expanding digital economy.”
