Payeezy Gateway Advanced Fraud Filters

Payeezy Gateway Advanced Fraud Filters


Payeezy Gateway now offers advance fraud filters to help reduce fraudulent transactions which in turn can help reduce chargebacks. These new features allow you to create positive and negative lists for:

  • IP Address
  • Credit Card Number (that is not tokenized)
  • Email Address or Domain
  • Reference Number
  • Billing Address
  • Country

While you can create these fraud filters from the Administration tab within the Payeezy Gateway RPM, you can also easily create new filters from the Transaction Search list simply by clicking on a transaction and then by selecting "Fraud Filter."

New Reporting has been added to the Reporting area of the RPM to allow you to view a detailed report of transactions that have been blocked by your custom fraud filters.
