Fraud Prevention

Instant Accept has many fraud prevention features built-in to our payment gateway. Below expands a few specific tools to help merchants protect their business and their customers.

Tokenization

The User Profile feature allows the merchant to process returning customers without the need to store sensitive and confidential customer information on the merchant’s server. Storing sensitive information requires secure servers, in addition to various certifications. Prismpay is PCI DSS (PCI Data Security Standard) certified.

SSL Technology

The SSL security protocol provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity, and optional client authentication for a TCP/IP connection. Because SSL is built into all major browsers and web servers, simply installing a digital certificate turns on their SSL capabilities.

Built-In Fraud Prevention Features

Fraud Prevention and SecurityCustomers using Instant Accept through the payment gateway integration have built-in fraud tools that can be activated by simply checking a box.  Each transaction submitted can be filtered through a comprehensive series of fraud prevention rules to determine potential risks. Configuration of these rules is under your complete control using our user-friendly Online Merchant Center merchant administration web site.

Businesses can block transactions that exhibit suspicious buying behaviors such as:

  • Block a credit card that is submitted and declined twice within 24 hours using different expiration dates.
  • Check City and State entries for validity against the zip code entered.
  • Check area codes for validity against the zip code entered.

 

Businesses can block transactions that exhibit suspicious buying behaviors such as:

Feature Action
Credit Card Numbers The merchant may block any credit card by adding the account to the block list.
Name Occasionally the merchant may wish to add the name of a problematic company or customer to a block list so that they will be prevented from purchasing regardless of the form of payment.
Country Blocking of orders from certain countries for shipping or acceptance of payment can be accommodated.
Negative Account Blocking Reject transactions from known fraudulent account numbers.
Cramming Protection Prevent the use of credit card or ACH number generating schemes by limiting the number of transactions allowed from a given IP address.
Domain Blocking Filter transactions by the Internet domain associated with the customer’s email address.
Country Blocking Filter transactions by the Internet domain associated with the customer’s country code.
Prevent Duplicate Transactions Track recent transactions to ensure the same transaction is not authorized more than once. This eliminates problems due to “double-clicking”
