ezimerchant has teamed up with MaxMind to provide an industry leading Credit Card Fraud Detection tool to assist you to verify the validity of orders. As a merchant you are liable for most fraudulent transactions, so equip yourself with tools to reduce any risk.
Each order made is given a risk rating so you can quickly identify which orders need further investigation before shipping. The risk score algorithm looks at multiple factors including IP address associated with the transaction, country of the credit card, type of email address, risk of the country etc.
The score calculated to estimate the riskiness of accepting a credit card ranges from 0 (low risk) to 1 (high risk).
A risk score of more than 0.3 should be investigated further. Scores below this are within acceptable levels and considered to be of low risk.
