Payment Method Check

This check can be used to apply higher or lower risk scores to transactions based on the payment method used.

Some payment methods have higher or lower correlations with fraud. This check allows merchants to affect the risk score based on the payment method behavior that have noted with their fraudsters and good users. 

Configuration Options

  • Merchants are able to submit scores for any of their configured payment methods (note that payment methods not currently being used are not on the list).
  • Both positive and negative values can be added accordingly. For example, in the example below Paypal payments receive a score of -50, lowering the fraud score.
