The Fraud Detection Suite safeguards your account using powerful transaction filters and IP address tools to identify and prevent suspicious transactions. Flexible settings allow you to customize the transaction filters to meet your unique business needs.
Online transaction fraud is real. To an unprotected merchant the effects of fraud can be devastating. It is essential that merchants protect their online businesses as carefully and strategically as they would a retail store. In addition to industry standard security practices and verification tools, solutions such as the Fraud Detection Suite are necessary to provide advanced protection from online transaction fraud. This set of customizable, rules-based filters and tools can help you further strengthen the security and reliability of your payment gateway account by enhancing your current fraud detection and management practices. Additionally, the Fraud Detection Suite will prevent costly authorization and chargeback fees, and the possible loss of inventory, that often result from fraudulent transactions.
Amount Filter – Allows merchants to set lower and upper transaction amount thresholds, restricting high-risk transactions often used to “test” the validity of credit card numbers.
Velocity Filter – Limits the total number of transactions received per hour, preventing high-volume attacks common with fraudulent transactions.
Suspicious Transaction Filter – Detects highly suspicious transactions using proprietary identification criteria and transaction behavior analysis.
Shipping/Billing Mismatch Filter – Identifies high-risk transactions with different shipping and billing addresses, potentially indicating purchases made using a stolen credit card.
Transaction IP Velocity Filter – Identifies excessive transactions received from the same IP address per hour, isolating suspicious activity from a single source.
Authorized AIM IP Addresses – Allows merchants submitting Advanced Integration Method (AIM) transactions to list server IP addresses that are authorized to submit transactions.
IP Address Blocking – Allows merchants to block transactions from IP addresses known to be used for fraudulent activity.
