DeliveryAddressCheck by Regis24



Having the textual content of an address validated – for example, based on its plausibility – is now possible. The innovative DeliveryAddressCheck service from Regis24 protects your business from delivery address fraud and also your offer from being purchased on account.

Think ahead on anti-fraud:
minimise fake delivery addresses and identities in real time.

Package stations, empty houses and apartments or post boxes bearing a new name-sticker – fraud involving fake delivery addresses is alarmingly creative and costs e-commerce and payment service providers millions.

To tackle online fraud, anti-fraud systems check declared identity. Until now, actual delivery and invoice addresses have often not been factored in as indicators of fraud. But these can provide information – in combination with our IdentityCheck service – as to whether or not a fraudulent receiving of goods is being planned.

With its DeliveryAddressCheck package, Regis24 is now rolling out a powerful solution to plug this gap.

In tandem with Regis24’s identity research system IdentityCheck, and practically in real time, DeliveryAddressCheck enables your company to validate a user’s delivery address in real time by way of a state of the art GraphQL app programming interface (API), to avoid delivery fraud. DeliveryAddressCheck from Regis24 can currently validate the addresses of over 70% of adults in an e-commerce context.

During this process, instances of misuse of identity or the use of fake identities are automatically identified, flagged and reported to your anti-fraud system – a new type of shield against fraudulent exploitation of e-commerce that uses fake delivery addresses, consequently leading to a higher quota of new customers for you, as well as greater reliability when it comes to payments on account.

Systems suffer from online fraud –
and Regis24 has the technology to tackle it.

Fraud-friendly products can be found in individual brands and in entire market segments. Electronic articles are top of online fraudsters’ wish-lists. A growing theme for product fraud are lists circulating on the internet that pass on information about which especially valuable electronic articles are sitting in a package station.

Variations in delivery addresses could already be a problem here. Because how can a conventional system recognise whether or not an address is authentically linked with a declared identity? For this reason, potential new customers are rejected far too often.

Regis24 has been established as a credit agency since 2003 and is well-versed especially in handling data relating to identity and creditworthiness. As consumers’ patterns of purchasing behaviour and methods of fraud in the realm of online buying have evolved, so too has our business. With our anti-fraud solutions, we’re now using the very latest technologies and machine learning software to keep pace with the speed of online trading for you.

One of the core elements of Regis24’s range of services is our own IdentConnect technology, developed in-house that, using the principle of identity resolution, is able to place into context different data points as they apply to an identity or to a delivery or invoicing address.

This technology, in concert with Regis24’s available quality of data – not least the platform HIVE – is definitively superior to conventional systems.

How Regis24’s DeliveryAddress­Check works, in detail:

  • with the help of a state of the art GraphQL interface, your system starts its enquiries on the basis of pre-provided indicators like name, date of birth, and address
  • there are absolutely no restrictions on the number of addresses that can be checked at the same time, since the GraphQl technology can handle several subsidiary enquiries for the same field
  • for the Regis24 DeliveryAddressCheck your query is equally valid whether it applies to a full address or to a fragment of a delivery, residence or invoice address
  • the IdentConnect technology examines, practically in real time, matches to the queried identity in connection with the address in diverse Regis24 databases, including Regis HIVE
  • our confirmation of a delivery address is sent back to your system, whether an address (or a part of it) is already known for a queried identity or not.

One of the most up-to-the-minute and affordable solutions on the market: preconfigured IdentityCheck.

Learn more about how to verify identities using Regis24’s IdentityCheck. For DeliveryAddressCheck customers, this is integrated as standard and is a fundamental element of our reliable results delivery service.

Statistical value for your own anti-fraud system too: with IdentityCheck as a preconfigured component of DeliveryAddress­Check.

To be able to validate the textual content of an address– for example, based on its plausibility –  the Regis24 system has to automatically check identity beforehand. The value-for-money IdentityCheck service is therefore an integral component of DeliveryAddressCheck, and this leads to clear benefits for your company.

In contrast to our competitors, IdentityCheck from Regis24 also makes available to your own in-house system the statistical indicators underlying the result.

This means that your anti-fraud engine can make much more accurate and actionable decisions as a result of the Regis24-derived data values transferred to you – such as quantitative and qualitative assessments of reliability with regard to an identity – with no additional costs.
