Shopper IP originates from high-risk country

This referral list allows the merchant to make block lists based on the shopper's IP country. This check comes with some countries included by default (ex. Nigeria).

See How do I add shoppers to a block or trust list? to know more.

Note that IP addresses are not guaranteed indicators of a user's true country. Proxies and VPNs allow for fraudsters to obfuscate their true location. This check should be paired with the use of the shopper using an anonymous proxy check.

Configuration Options

  • Merchants are able to submit countries individually.
  • The score associated with the block list is established by the score associated with the rule in the main rule menu. 
  • There is currently no ability to create a trust list for countries.
