According to the results of the 13th annual CyberSource Online Fraud Report, U.S. merchants lost an estimated $3.4 billion to fraud in 2011.
The Advanced Fraud Detection Suite was specifically built to provide merchants with tools to better combat online fraud. Here's how the Advanced Fraud Detection Suite can help:
Minimize and prevent authorization and chargeback fees as well as possible inventory loss resulting from fraudulent transactions.
Maximize legitimate transactions, rather than refusing business due to a fear of potential fraud.
Customize filter settings according to your unique business needs.
Restrict transaction activity from specific Internet Protocol (IP) addresses using powerful IP tools.
A setup wizard guides you through the configuration process.
AFDS includes multiple filters and tools that work together to evaluate transactions for indicators of fraud. Their combined logic provides a powerful and highly effective defense against fraudulent transactions.
In addition to the filters listed below, Authorize.Net also offers a new Daily Velocity Filter at no charge. The Daily Velocity Filter allows you to specify a threshold for the number of transactions allowed per day, a useful tactic to identify high-volume fraud attacks.
Set lower and upper transaction amount thresholds to restrict high-risk transactions often used to test the validity of credit card numbers.
Limit the total number of transactions received per hour, preventing high-volume attacks common with fraudulent transactions.
Identify high-risk transactions with different shipping and billing addresses, potentially indicating purchases made using a stolen credit card.
Isolate suspicious activity from a single source by identifying excessive transactions received from the same IP address.
Reviews highly suspicious transactions using proprietary criteria identified by Authorize.Net's dedicated Fraud Management Team.
Allows merchant submitting Advanced Integration Method (AIM) transactions to designate specific server IP addresses that are authorized to submit transactions.
Block transactions from IP addresses known to be used for fraudulent activity.
The Address Verification Service (AVS) is a standard feature of the payment gateway that compares the address submitted with an order to the address on file with the customer's credit card issuer. Merchants can then choose to reject or allow transactions based on the AVS response codes. AFDS includes a new AVS filter that assists the decision process by allowing merchants the additional options of flagging AVS transactions for monitoring purposes, or holding them for manual review.
Like AVS, Card Code Verification (CCV) is a standard feature of the payment gateway. CCV uses a card's three- or four-digit number to validate customer information on file with the credit card association. Like the AVS Filter, the CCV Filter allows merchants the additional options of flagging CCV transactions for monitoring purposes, or holding them for manual review.
Verifies that the shipping address received with an order is a valid postal address.
Compare the shipping address provided with an order to the IP address of where the order originated from. This helps to determine whether or not the order is shipping to the country from which it originated.
Flag orders coming from specific regions or countries. You can choose to customize the filter actions based on an entire geographic area, or select country by country how to process transactions flagged by the filter.
