Even in 2019, online shopping is not as easy as one thinks, and only 80% of consumers complete their transactions, according to Naama Ofek-Arad, the chief operations officer of Tel Aviv-based online payments fraud prevention startup Riskified Ltd. Speaking Monday at a fintech conference held in Tel Aviv by Calcalist, Bank Leumi’s tech banking arm LeumiTech, and accounting firm KPMG, Oefk-Arad said Riskified's objective is to optimize the process and see every "legitimate" buyer complete the transaction.
