What is WooCommerce Anti-Fraud?
WooCommerce Anti-Fraud is designed to help you pick up fraudulent transactions and catch them as they happen – by scanning and providing a score for each sale made via your online store, based on a set of advanced scoring rules.
WooCommerce Anti-Fraud Features
- Automatically block or pause fraudulent orders.
- Easily view risks and warnings associated with each order
- Receive notifications when a fraudulent or unsafe order is placed.
- Reduce store management time by quickly filtering out illegitimate orders.
Checking the ‘risk’ of each order
WooCommerce Anti-Fraud automatically assigns a score out of 100 to each order. This is called the risk score. The higher the number, the more likely the order is to be fraudulent. Examining the risk score allows you to quickly evaluate the potential risk level of the transaction and act accordingly.
Underneath the risk score, the user can view warnings associated with the order. The advice provided is related to the rules in place (for example, if a customer’s IP address doesn’t match the billing country). The higher this number is, the more likely it is that the order is illegitimate.
Automatically cancel or pause suspicious orders
If a potentially fraudulent transaction is detected, the WooCommerce Anti-Fraud may perform one or more of the following automated actions:
- Cancel the order
- Hold the order
Notify the administrator via email, without changing the order status
In the plugin’s settings, you can change when these actions are triggered according to their risk score. For example, you may only want to automatically cancel orders if their risk score is higher than 90.
Detect multiple orders from the same IP address
If multiple orders are coming from the same location over a short period of time, they are much more likely to be illegitimate. WooCommerce Anti Fraud allows you to see when this happens.
IP Address Checker
The plugin will let you know if a user has made several orders using the same IP address. It will also determine if the customer has ordered behind a proxy.
