About

Think about how painful it was the last time you transacted on Craigslist. Of the 770M visitors in the last month on Craigslist alone, all transactions were carried out with cash. Yet, the reason why Craigslist was unable to integrate cashless payment providers was due to the trust and safety issues on their site. Using Feedzai's Machine Learning API, we were able to train a bot to assign a risk score for each listing on Craigslist - using features such as geolocation verification, presence of stock photos, and general NLP techniques to extract information from the listing descriptions. Trainsaction is then able to offer secure online payments by default on Craigslist, which presents an opportunity to provide personalized recommendations based on their most recent purchases, while enabling the 1.5 billion consumers around the world on various marketplace apps.
