This is one of things that I hate about people who whine about e-commerce
providers imposing stuff on them. They normally have a lot of it imposed
on them by their banks and/or payment service providers by being told they
will be responsible for fraud if they dont do it. Which is fine for a 5
pound item but less so for a 2000 pound one.
You can even outsource your fraud screening.
