Using Advanced Fraud Tools

Advanced Fraud Tools will always run automatically in the background and provide a score for a transaction. No further action is required on your part.

Note that Advanced Fraud Tools feature will never enable or disable the ability to proceed with a transaction. Always refer to your organization’s policies before making a decision.

Understanding Your Score

For each payment in a given contract, you'll see an assigned letter grade within the Fraud Score column. This grade is an estimation of the overall safety of the transaction.

  • Transactions rated A or B are those that contain multiple indicators that the transaction is safe to proceed with.
  • Transactions with C or D grades are likely safe but notably affected by one or more risk factors.
  • The riskiest transactions are rated F.

Score Factors

Multiple factors are considered when determining a transaction’s Fraud Score. These factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Payment card
  • Authorization status (approved/not approved)
  • Merchant ID
  • Billing address
  • AVS/CVV verification
  • Payer email address
  • Payer IP address
