Affise and 24metrics Introduce the Game Changing Advanced Anti-fraud

Fraudulent traffic is considered to be one of the most annoying problems in affiliate marketing for a reason. It’s hardly surprising. What can be more unpleasant than paying affiliates for conversions that do not generate real revenue for affiliate networks and advertisers?

Affiliate fraud is more than meets the eye in terms of wasting their marketing budgets. Some advertisers may mistakenly assume that fraudsters steal just a tiny bit of your profits, but real numbers can come as a shock. Juniper Research forecasts  digital advertisers’ total losses due to fraud to reach $100 billion by 2023. Considering its growth from $3.9 billion in 2017 to $42 billion in 2019, the forecast sounds rather realistic. 

Yet, you can’t avoid fraud while doing business online unless you take measures that would protect your business and clients against fraudsters. Many established advertisers consider using anti-fraud solutions essential for starting a partnership with a network. The same applies to top tier affiliates when they join a partner program.

Affise and 24metrics introduce Advanced Anti-fraud

Since the very beginning, we paid sufficient attention to fraud prevention and developed a series of features networks and advertisers could use. But as with anything else, we are ready to take it further. We’re proud to announce our partnership with 24metrics, the authors of Fraudshield – industry leading fraud detection algorithms. The 24metrics advanced fraud prevention solution finally makes dealing with fraudulent conversions as simple as it’s meant to be!

What problems does 24metrics solve?

24metrics multilayer approach to fraud detection makes it possible to analyze conversions through a broad list of filters including:

  • Duplicate IPs
  • Duplicate Device IDs
  • Bot-like behavior
  • VPN/Proxies
  • Third Party Rejection
  • Sub ID Validity Check
  • Old OS/Browser, etc.

This enables it to detect potentially fraudulent conversions with an unprecedented accuracy.

With advanced fraud detection you can:

  • Save money by automatically declining fraudulent conversions, without having to pay publishers for them. 
  • Examine detailed reports to detect which affiliates tend to provide fraudulent traffic the most, which may make you change conditions with an affiliate or reconsider the partnership at all.
  • Use explicit reports in your negotiations with advertisers – make your relationships more trustworthy, having an independent proof of your conversions not being fraudulent. With the conversion reports you have clear and transparent reasons for every rejected conversion.

This slice is available to all our clients no matter if they use Advanced Anti-fraud or not. Customers who also use Advanced Anti-fraud will be able to see the information about conversions that were automatically declined by Advanced Anti-fraud.

The Advanced slice is a Risk level slice available only to Advanced Anti-fraud users. It displays the details on:

  • How many conversions were analyzed with Advanced Anti-fraud;
  • How many of analyzed conversions were marked as potentially fraudulent;
  • How many of them were automatically declined;
  • The distribution of conversions by risk levels.
