Transaction Risk API
Maximize Approval Rates, Improve Transaction Security and Fight Payment Fraud
Transaction Risk API provides payment operations teams critical insights into client-provided identity information to reduce friction and improve customer experience while keeping fraud at bay.
How it Works
Provide transaction details (of up to 26 inputs) and receive critical insights around individual and combinations of data points to help you confidently assess the risk of a single transaction.
Leverage seven proprietary signals around primary and secondary emails (email first seen) and addresses (address first seen), as well as the location address (IP last seen), phone (phone last seen), and combination of phone and IP provided (phone IP last seen) to improve accuracy of your fraud models.
Validity Checks for Payment Details
Evaluate the authenticity of billing and shipping details such as email, phone, address provided by the customer.
Enriched Phone Metadata

Risk Flags and Scores
