RevenueProtect

This is Adyen’s integrated risk management solution. To help prevent fraud, RevenueProtect runs a series of risk checks on each payment. These determine the fraud score of a transaction.

The risk checks are run on shopper information you submit with each transaction. For more information, see Provide data for risk checks.

You can customize RevenueProtect's risk checks in the Customer Area.

Configuring the risk checks

When a risk check is triggered, the fraud score for the transaction increases. If the fraud score is 100 or higher the transaction is refused.

Some risk checks can also decrease the fraud score when they are triggered. This lets you accept payments from shoppers that would otherwise be refused.

You can configure how much the fraud score is adjusted when a risk check is triggered, in your Customer Area > RevenueProtect > Risk Engine Profiles.

Adding a positive value on the right determines how much the score will increase.

If a risk check allows you to decrease the fraud score, you can add a negative value on the left. This determines how much the fraud score with decrease when triggered.

Many risk checks are highly customizable, and allow you to make further configuration. You can do this by clicking theicon. For more information on how you can customize each risk checks, refer to <NAME OF SECTION HERE>.

The Adyen payments platform automatically blocks known fraudsters, regardless of the fraud score.
