FraudScore
What is FraudScore?
The FraudScore service is a web service that can be queried via the HTTP protocol using our pre-built plugin that seamlessly integrates with SunShop. Merchants are not required to ask customers for any additional information since the data service inputs are the same as those typically used in online order forms. Within a few seconds, FraudScore returns a risk score as well as other relevant raw details on the analysis of the transaction. The resulting data can be used to automate order processing or used to supplement a manual review.

How FraudScore Works
Given the Internet's built-in anonymity and ability to execute transactions from anywhere, authenticating the identity of the customer can be fairly difficult. Traditional tools such as AVS and CVV have become less effective since sophisticated fraudsters generally have access to complete credit card information of the individual they are trying to impersonate.
Geolocation is the ability to determine where online visitors are physically located based on their IP addresses. With geolocation, merchants can use information they already have, the user's IP, to non-intrusively determine where their customers are physically located. By creating geographic boundaries on the Internet and providing the customer's location, geolocation can be used effectively to detect potential fraud by analyzing the differences between the user location and the billing address.
