RE: [registrars] Credit Card Proposal
The fraud prevent mechanisms vary far and wide, and I am not adopting any
specific mechanism. I am of the opinion that registries are not unsympatheic
to our situation. However, I believe they want to make sure that registrars
are doing everything they can to minimize fraud as opposed to just asking
the registries to give them a credit.
This is why I call my proposal a middle of the road approach where both
parties meet somewhere in the middle. Obviously if the registries and
registrars choose to maintain entrenched positions then the status quo will
be preserved and the registrars will continue to bear the full burden of
credit card charge backs.
