Card Acceptance Security

Learn the signs of eCommerce and credit card fraud and the steps you can take to help prevent it with tips and tools from M&T Bank Merchant Services®. 

Understanding fraud is the first step to preventing it.

Today, every business faces a growing risk of credit card and eCommerce fraud. Your best defense is knowing the signs of fraud and following industry best practices to prevent it. M&T Bank Merchant Services is here to help educate you on two types of fraud, Card-Present and Card-Not-Present/Ecommerce fraud.

When processing in-person credit or debit card transactions, you can take proactive steps to reduce your risk of fraud, by looking for the common warning signs of debit or credit card fraud and updating and maintaining your point of sale (POS) equipment and software properly.

If your business accepts card-not-present transactions, you (not the card issuer) are liable for any fraudulent transactions. You can help minimize your risk of loss and penalties with the right tools and information, by using Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant equipment and following PCI best practices.
