Duplicate Merchant Reference

This risk check initiates when  a duplicate merchant reference is used within a specific time frame. Do not use dummy data as a merchant reference. As the merchant reference is not generated by shoppers, the rule is not meant to prevent fraudulent payments.

Configuration options

  • A threshold for the time frame.

  • When the system stores the merchant reference (pre auth or post auth).
