Dylan Pierce, the proprietor and operator of Verdict

Verdict is behind the anti-fraud Shopify apps Blockade, and Real ID by Dylan Pierce as small side projects to help Shopify merchants prevent chargebacks and fraudulent activity.

Dylan grew up in rural Ohio and taught himself how to build computers & solve problems with them. This hobby became his career with startups starting in his dorm room at Drexel University.

He has built several MVPs for clients as part of his boutique software agency, but has a special passion for building anti-fraud solutions to protect small businesses. His belief is that merchants work hard for their bottom line, and they should keep it.
