A Credit Card Approval Solution

The Problem: In 2014, 31.8 million U.S. consumers lost $16 billion by having their credit cards breached. This resulted in a total of $16 billion in losses which is more than three times the number affected in 2013. In fact, the U.S. is responsible for 47% of the world’s credit card fraud which totals $5.55 billion. In 2014, about 90% of card breach victims required replacement cards, which totaled as much as $12.75 per card. The infographic below explains the consumers and e-wallet companies’ opinions of the mobile payment business.
