41st Parameter Launches TrustInsight Network

41stParameter logo 140px 41st Parameter has announced the TrustInsight Network – a new crowd-sourced service that aims to improve card-not-present transaction approval rates.
With TrustInsight, every online consumer transaction will carry a TrustScore generated from encrypted data contributed by TrustInsight Network participants. This crowd-sourced TrustScore functions as the standard for eCommerce CNP trust. TrustInsight makes it easier for merchants to confidently process the more than 70% of online orders that come from first time customers. These people are unknown to the merchant but that doesn’t mean they can’t be trusted. That is the problem TrustInsight solves.
