Violating Fraud Rules

Shoppers who place orders that violate fraud rules are unaware of the violation. After the shopper completes the order, the Order State is set to Potential Fraud. You then receive a "New Order Potentially Fraudulent" email notice instead of the normal "New Order" email notice.

To resolve a potentially fraudulent order, you can call the customer or otherwise investigate the order, and then, perform one of the following actions:

  • If you want to accept the order, change the Payment Status to Completed. The order status automatically changes to Invoiced.
  • If you do not want to accept the order, change the order status to Cancelled. The shopper receives an Order Cancellation email notification.

Downloadable Products

When configuring your Payment options for downloadable products, you can allow customers to download products upon the credit card's authorization or pre-authorization. Authorization allows customers to download the product only after the credit card is authorized and the payment is completely processed. Pre-authorization allows customers to download the product after the card is pre-authorized, regardless of the order failing fraud rule. We highly recommend setting the "When do you want to allow your customers to download their purchase?" setting to "Authorize," which avoids this potential fraud loophole.
