Advanced Fraud Detection Suite

The Advanced Fraud Detection Suite (AFDS) helps identify, manage, and prevent suspicious and potentially fraudulent transactions, which can be costly.

Think you aren't big enough to be noticed by fraudsters?

When this activity is chosen, transactions that trigger this filter are sent for authorization, and upon successful authorization are placed in the Authorized/Pending Review state. Once in Authorized/Pending Review, you will have 30 days to manually review and either approve or void the transaction. If no step is taken in the 30 days, the transaction will expire. This step is useful if you want to review authorized transactions before submitting them for settlement.

Three ways to protect your business from fraud

Be proactive

Look at your website and see where you might be vulnerable. What customer verification tools do you have in place now? Don’t ignore suspicious activity.

Use a fraud prevention tool

Authorize.net has a built-in fraud tool. Advanced Fraud Detection Suite comes with 13 easily configurable fraud filters to help set proper minimum transaction thresholds, payment velocity settings, country limitations, and more to help prevent processing fraudulent transactions.

Set up a simple firewall

Many firewalls come with basic tools for botnet detection, prevention, and removal.

Simple to configure

Advanced Fraud Detection Suite filters are built directly into the SPMS platform.

A setup wizard makes it simple and efficient to configure the fraud filters. Per-transaction notifications provide detail about what is happening in near-real time.

Take back control

AFDS gives you the control to manage your payments your way. You get to decide what happens when a filter is triggered.

Process as normal and report filter(s) triggered

When this action is selected, transactions that trigger this filter are placed in the Pending Review state before being sent for authorization. Once in Pending Review, you will have five days to manually review and either approve or decline the transaction. Once you approve the transaction, it is sent for authorization. If no step is taken in the five days, the transaction will expire. This step is useful if you want to review transactions before authorization to avoid incurring any associated authorization fees.

Authorize and hold for review

When this action is selected, transactions that trigger this filter are sent for authorization, and upon successful authorization are placed in the Authorized/Pending Review state. Once in Authorized/Pending Review, you will have 30 days to manually review and either approve or void the transaction. If no action is taken in the 30-day period, the transaction will expire. This action is useful if you want to review authorized transactions prior to submitting for settlement.

Do not authorize but hold for review

When this action is selected, transactions that trigger this filter are placed in the Pending Review state prior to being sent for authorization. Once in Pending Review, you will have five days to manually review and either approve or decline the transaction. Once you approve the transaction, it is sent for authorization. If no action is taken in the five-day period, the transaction will expire. This action is useful if you want to review transactions prior to authorization to avoid incurring any associated authorization fees.

Decline the transaction

When this action is selected, transactions that trigger the filter will be declined automatically prior to authorization. This is the most severe action you can take for a transaction.
