ClearSale’s advanced statistical technology and its team of expert fraud analysts—the world’s largest—combine to offer unique card-not-present (CNP) fraud prevention that reduces chargebacks and false positives while helping merchants to deliver an excellent customer experience. As the pandemic shifted consumers in many regions from in-store to online shopping and fraud attacks on ecommerce merchants increased, ClearSale’s 2020 net revenue grew by 65.7%, compared to 2019 growth of 35.5%. The company’s 2020 net international revenue grew by 132.7% to comprise 11% of the total.

ClearSale’s leadership team attended the IPO at the B3, where CEO Bernardo Lustosa credited customer confidence in ClearSale’s solutions with the company’s growth. “The IPO was the path we chose to expand the business and follow our mission to promote consumer confidence in the digital ecosystem. Investor confidence in our team, culture, solutions and future plans are now added to the reliability that our clients have already placed in the company over the past two decades to ensure their safety and maintain focus on the consumer.”
