External Risk Score (Generic)

This risk check intakes a score submitted in the payment request and allows the merchant to affect the Adyen risk score as they choose. The external score must be calculated before the payment request is submitted (pre-auth).

This risk provides merchants with a flexible mechanism to pass an external risk score without solution-specific configuration. This is particularly useful when a merchant has a risk system of their own, but they also want to use RevenueProtect in coordination with it. 

Configuration Options

  • The merchant can set values to receive in the external risk score and the corresponding value of the rule should be added to the Adyen risk score. For example, an external value of 5 may add 40 to the Adyen risk score. This setting is an exact match.
