Improve Intelligence

Restrict transaction activity from specific Internet Protocol (IP) addresses using powerful IP tools.

How It Works

AFDS includes multiple filters and tools that work together to evaluate transactions for indicators of fraud. Their combined logic provides a powerful and highly effective defense against fraudulent transactions.

In addition to the filters listed below, Authorize.net also offers a Daily Velocity Filter at no charge. The Daily Velocity Filter allows merchants to specify a threshold for the number of transactions allowed per day, a useful tactic to identify high-volume fraud attacks.

Amount Filter

Set lower and upper transaction amount thresholds to restrict high-risk transactions often used to test the validity of credit card numbers.

Hourly Velocity Filter

Limit the total number of transactions received per hour, preventing high-volume attacks common with fraudulent transactions.

Shipping Billing Mismatch Feature

Identify high-risk transactions with different shipping and billing addresses, potentially indicating purchases made using a stolen credit card.

Transaction IP Velocity Filter

Isolate suspicious activity from a single source by identifying excessive transactions received from the same IP address.

Suspicious Transaction Filter

Reviews highly suspicious transactions using proprietary criteria identified by Authorize.net's dedicated Fraud Management Team.

Regional IP Address Filter

Flag orders coming from specific regions or countries. Choose to customize the filter actions based on an entire geographic area, or select country by country how to process transactions flagged by the filter.

Authorized AIM IP Addresses

Designate specific server IP addresses that are authorized to submit transactions (for merchants submitting Advanced Integration Method (AIM) transactions).

IP Address Blocking

Block transactions from IP addresses known to be used for fraudulent activity.

Enhanced AVS Handling Filter

Choose from two additional options for handling Address Verification Service (AVS) transactions: flag a transaction for monitoring or hold for manual review. Standard AVS only allows merchants to reject or allow a transaction.

Enhanced CCV Handling Filter

Choose from two additional options for handling Card Code Verification (CCV) transactions: flag a transaction for monitoring or hold for manual review. Standard CCV only allows merchants to reject or allow a transaction.

Shipping Address Verification Filter

Verifies that the shipping address received with an order is a valid postal address.

IP Shipping Address Mismatch Filter

Compare the shipping address provided with an order to the IP address of where the order originated from. This helps to determine whether or not the order is shipping to the country from which it originated.
