Transaction laundering has quickly evolved into one of the payment industry’s most prominent and most difficult problems. Transaction laundering — also previously known as “undisclosed aggregation” or “factoring” — occurs when a merchant processes unknown transactions on behalf of another business. This hidden business is often engaged in prohibited activities, and the “front” merchant may either be colluding or exploited by this violating business.


With so many ways for a payment to enter the system, and therefore many ways for a transaction to be laundered, there is no one approach that is sufficient in identifying this complex problem.

G2 contacted us after they had [discovered] non-compliant sites located in the UK. We were able to use this data to link these to merchants on our portfolio who had registered a compliant URL at the point of approval.
