High-risk Business Models

The Online Risk Management Handbook Series


Certain business models pose inherently more risk because they can more easily take advantage of consumers. While many of these merchants may be legitimate and operating in good faith, these business models warrant extra scrutiny because they have a history of abuse and problematic activity.

In this webinar, which is adapted from a chapter in The Online Risk Management Handbook, we focus on some of the most common high-risk business models, such as:

  • negative-option billing
  • drop-shipping
  • no-value-added services
  • multilevel marketing.

You’ll see real case studies of problematic merchants, hear about the latest regulatory actions against these business models, and get practical tips for scrutinizing merchants that pose an elevated risk. Register today.
