Persistent Merchant Monitoring

Protect your portfolio and increase revenue with G2 Risk Solutions, used by more leading acquirers than all other providers combined.

Monitor merchant websites globally

Identify risky content being offered by your merchants to stay compliant with card brand rules (GBPP/BRAM) and governmental regulations. Additionally, receive alerts on configurable terms of service content categories per your organization’s risk policies.

Thorough content monitoring

  • Mitigate card network fines via better underwriting and monitoring.
  • Detect merchants that masquerade as “low-risk” within your portfolio.
  • Decrease risk by immediately weeding out bad actors.

Data, technology, and insights

When you use G2RS data assets, technology at scale, and unparalleled domain expertise you gain powerful insights completely unique in the market. Persistent Merchant Monitoring (PMM) also helps you save time and money spent on internal risk management processes, allowing your teams to turn more focus to decision-making instead of data collection.
