Return Fraud Detection
Why Implement Entrupy Fingerprinting?
Entrupy Fingerprinting is a fool-proof way to spot and stop attempts at “switch” fraud. Easily deployed at the point of sale as well as in distribution centers, Fingerprinting ensures the item returned is the exact same item that was originally sold and/or shipped.
Your reputation is among your most valuable assets. Adding Entrupy Fingerprinting to your inventory control processes is an unobtrusive-yet-powerful way to demonstrate your commitment to ensuring the quality of everything you sell.
To have a product expert manually verify every return is unscalable, and bad actors are ready to exploit that weak point in the supply chain. Entrupy Fingerprinting is the scalable solution for retailers and logistics centers to accurately verify that an item returned is the same as the item sold.
The high risk of return fraud leads many retailers to implement slow and inefficient verification methods, ultimately causing delays in refunds. Entrupy Fingerprinting provides instant confirmation of a product’s identity, enabling immediate processing while ensuring counterfeits can’t penetrate the supply chain.

Fingerprinting as a technology is applicable to any physical product without requiring physical modification of the product. Categories for which Entrupy has developed significant support include designer bags & accessories, watches, beauty products, wine & spirits, electronics and medical equipment.
Second, Fingerprinting is significantly more secure than traditional solutions, which generally lack security and are therefore more prone to manipulation. For example, there have been a number of instances where an existing QR code was replaced with a lookalike. When the QR code was scanned, users would be unknowingly redirected to malicious content or trojan scripts, revealing their valuable personal information to bad actors. This vulnerability to corruption creates enormous risks around data privacy.
We all know that product experts are few and far between, and that makes the returns process easy for bad actors to exploit. Entrupy Fingerprinting can also serve as the ultimate product expert, enabling retailers and distribution to accurately verify that the item returned is the same as the item sold.
Lastly, Entrupy Fingerprinting helps improve the customer experience by enabling faster returns. The high risk of return fraud leads many retailers to implement slow and inefficient verification methods, ultimately causing delays in refunds. Entrupy Fingerprinting provides instant confirmation of a product’s identity, enabling immediate processing while ensuring counterfeits can’t penetrate the supply chain.
Fingerprinting is easily incorporated in your existing workflow:
- Pre-sale product registration: Before or during the sale, simply scan the item using Entrupy’s device. In approximately 3 to 5 seconds, that item is forever recorded in Entrupy’s cloud database.
- Post-sale return verification: If the customer attempts to return a product, simply re-scan the item. Entrupy’s algorithms compare the item you have in hand against the registered Fingerprint image. If the product is the same, the Fingerprint will match. If it’s not the same item, then it won’t.
