BEIJING, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DHpay, one of the most well-known payment service providers offering a cross-border, multi-currency payment platform in China, has announced that it has implemented Austreme's Transaction Laundering Detection solution (TLD) in order to empower the existing risk and fraud management of its payment platform.

DHpay is the independent subsidiary and payment platform of leading B2B e-commerce giant DHgate, one of the first B2B online marketplaces in China for buyers and sellers around the world. With a vision to offer a global payment platform for worldwide e-commerce users with multi-channel payment services, DHpay has extended its business to become an emerging payment service provider.

By providing secure, multi-currency international online payment and financial services, DHpay handles a huge number of transactions generated from the ever-growing cross-border e-commerce businesses of its merchants in China and other countries every day. It was the first company to set up a Trust & Safety Center with a strict risk management system in China, the primary focus of which is to manage all online transaction risk, account operation risk and chargebacks. Working closely with major card schemes like Visa and MasterCard, DHpay follows Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards and has appointed Austreme as its TLD service provider.

By implementing the comprehensive TLD solution in its platform, DHpay is now able to detect all suspicious activities of merchants such as transaction aggregation and non-compliance with rules such as Card Acceptor Business Code (MCC) miscoding violations. Furthermore, all illegal and brand-damaging activities, such as sale of prohibited drugs, tobacco products, pornographic images, counterfeit goods and illegal electronic devices can also be addressed by Austreme's anti-transaction laundering service.

"We work closely with our partners that consist of multiple cross-border organizations - in order to provide payment methods that both buyers and sellers can trust by combating dishonest transactions, illegal activities and unethical practices," said Zhang Yali, Trust and Safety Department director of DHgate. "We can now monitor all registered merchant IDs, URLs and MCCs through the integration of our DHpay payment platform and powerful Risk Detection System with Austreme's Transaction Laundering Detection solution. Upon the detection of any suspicious activities or violations, our risk and fraud management officers receive an alert and immediately investigate the findings in the report, then follow up on the final resolution. Austreme's TLD service reduces our workload in manual checking and overall operation cost. We ensure our partners and customers using the platform are secure from all attacks, including malware and phishing, while preventing the degradation or interruption of payment and transaction performance."

Mr. Terence Chau, Risk and Compliance Director of Austreme said, "Our TLD solution helps DHpay to mitigate risks in business, reputation and financial aspects. We are a one-stop solution provider for merchant onboarding check, transaction laundering detection and online store illegal content monitoring. With our expertise in TLD solutions, DHpay is able to identify the hidden, high risk merchants and avoid any illegal transaction aggregation activities."
