A unique combination of capabilities creates a truly powerful solution for digital commerce
How it works?
The Flexcharge AcceptIQ Platform
We leverage decades of real time underwriting and analytics experience to evaluate payments and broader customer information to identify good customers who have been incorrectly declined.
Frictionless Decline Resolutions
Our Customer Promise
We are committed to helping customers get the product they want, using the card they chose, with the limits they already have, and at no additional cost to them.
The combination of our Customer Promise and our unique AcceptIQ platform, allows FlexCharge to transform payment declines into successful transactions with zero friction for customers and zero risk for merchants.
We take care of all payment declines, not just fraud
There are many companies that offer services to assess potentially fraudulent transactions, but fraud represents just a small percentage of all declines. FlexCharge covers 100% of decline codes including ‘funds not available’ and ‘do not honor’. Additionally, we have solutions for both Customer and Merchant Initiated Transactions.
We operate in frictionless real-time
We have a unique ability to truly manage a decline payment in a frictionless manner. No re-keying of the payment details, no registration, and no poor customer experience. Most of the time, customers do not need to do anything.
We take full liability for the transactions we approve
We do not provide a “risk score” or a recommendation. We settle the transactions that we accept to merchants via our service and then manage the customer’s repayment separately. And if we do not get paid by the customer, we bear the full loss.
We operate a highly scalable cloud native platform
The AcceptIQ platform leverages a blend of AI models, seasoned business rules engines and fraud screens to generate decision outcomes. The platform can be integrated at the merchant or PSP level with real time communication flow and transactions are managed via the payment orchestration layer determining how, when, and where to best re-authorize payments.
Initial Payment Attempt
The Customer provides payment details at checkout using your existing checkout page.
If the payment is successful, FlexCharge remains invisible.
If the payment is declined, rather than showing an error message, the transaction is sent to FlexCharge in real time.
Real Time, Embedded Decline Resolution
FlexCharge assesses the transaction and determines eligibility within a couple of seconds.
In most cases FlexCharge's approvals are invisible to the customer as they do not require any customer interaction. Customers whose transactions are rescued by FlexCharge, receive the product or service as if their payment transaction was successful.
The order is completed and the customer receives confirmation.
The customer’s payment method is charged at a later date using a dynamic descriptor, ensuring that the merchant’s name is displayed on the customer’s statement.
Leveraging the FlexCharge AcceptIQ Platform, merchants can increase sales by up to 15%
On average, payment declines represent a 5-30% loss in sales. For digital commerce, over 80% of declined payments can lead to losing the customer altogether so the lifetime revenue impacts really add up.
