Billing Address Differs From Delivery Address

This risk checks fires when the billing address is different from the delivery address.

The address information must be submitted in the payment request for this check to work properly.

Because payment credentials are often stolen in fraudulent transaction, it is common for fraudsters to have goods delivered to a different location than indicated in the billing address.

In order to improve the accuracy of matching when minor differences in spelling and formatting occur, the addresses are normalized in the Adyen Customer Area (CA). Further, this check limits the comparison to the country, postal code, and house number.
