PayNearMe and Accertify Offering Enhanced Fraud Prevention for Online Sports Betting and iGaming Operators



Accertify’s integration into the MoneyLineTM Platform enables PayNearMe clients to leverage a machine learning driven approach to identify threats, help reduce fraud and deliver a better player experience.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 4, 2023 – PayNearMe, provider of the modern and reliable payments platform designed to manage the complexities of iGaming and sports betting, today announced a new technology offering with Accertify, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of American Express. Integration of Accertify’s fraud prevention technology into PayNearMe’s MoneyLine Platform lets iGaming and sports betting operators actively detect and reduce fraudulent fund withdrawals through a unified platform.

“PayNearMe and Accertify can now empower our operators to proactively ensure their players are who they say they are, via intelligent access to Accertify’s community database which already protects many of the largest operators in the iGaming space,” said John Minor, Chief Product Officer, PayNearMe. “Accertify’s machine learning technology analyzes this vast body of community data and alerts PayNearMe’s MoneyLine platform to authenticate transactions or, when needed, dynamically tighten security measures to help protect from account takeovers and promotional abuse without unnecessary added friction.”

Accertify’s technology helps identify suspicious activity, which can improve acceptance rates of debit and credit cards and reduce deposit declines. Additionally, the technology proactively verifies player identities and automates the approval process for withdrawals, giving players quicker access to their funds.

“Accertify’s platform protects many of the largest brands in the world. Our machine learning, device intelligence and user behavior analytics are designed to prevent fraud and abuse while helping to maintain and grow iGaming and sports betting operators’ relationships with their players,” said Mark Michelon, President, Accertify. “We are pleased to work with PayNearMe to bring our fraud solutions to their clients and provide operators with a more comprehensive and effective way to detect and prevent fraud.”
