Fraud Management Tools

Use BluePay’s fraud management tools to help detect and prevent payment abuse before it negatively impacts your customers, your business, or your reputation.


Fraud management tools have always been important within the payments industry. Yet with the growing popularity of online and mobile shopping, the landscape has shifted dramatically. Although customers now have the ability to purchase goods and services anywhere, anytime, on any device — this flexibility also has potential drawbacks. Card-not-present (CNP) transactions are at greater risk for fraud because merchants have to trust that the actual cardholder is authorizing the transaction, and sometimes that trust is violated.

“Retailers stand to lose about $130 billion in revenue on fraudulent card-not-present transactions between now and 2023 as they fail to keep up with digital fraud detection and prevention measures, according to a new forecast from Juniper Research."*

Although fraudulent transaction activity is on the rise, BluePay has you covered with our customizable suite of fraud monitoring tools. Detect fraud faster, protect your business, and safeguard your reputation.

From our wide selection of fraud monitoring tools, choose the PCI-compliant data security filters that make the most sense for your business. You can even combine all of these fraud management tools to enjoy the ultimate in data protection — while simultaneously reducing your PCI scope.

  • On-Hold Functionality
    Set parameters within the filters below to automatically place specific transactions on hold until you can manually review them. Upon review, you’ll have the option to release or decline transactions within the BluePay Gateway. You can also opt to receive email notifications whenever a suspicious transaction is flagged.
  • Velocity Filter
    Prevent criminals from testing card numbers against your merchant account. This filter can be configured to automatically decline transactions based on several parameters within a 60-minute time period, including number of transactions, number of transactions from a specific IP address, and maximum dollar amount for credits/refunds, sales and total sales amounts.
  • Threshold
    Stop fraudsters from entering amounts that are larger or smaller than the products and services you sell. Set maximum dollar amounts for sales, credits, and refunds. You can also set minimum amounts to prevent your account from being used for unauthorized approvals on stolen credit cards.
  • AVS (Address Verification) Filter
    Compare the billing address and ZIP code provided during checkout with what the card-issuing bank has on file. With our AVS fraud management tool, you can choose to verify against partial addresses or ZIP code matches. You can also opt not to require a match at all.
  • CVV (Card Verification Value) Filter
    Verify that the three-digit code on the back of the card (or the four-digit code on the front of an American Express) provided during checkout matches what the card-issuing bank has on file.
  • Card Issuing Country Filter
    Accept transactions from countries you deem trustworthy or block transactions from those that seem too risky with this fraud management tool. BluePay accomplishes this by performing a BIN lookup of the card, which identifies the country where the card was issued.
  • Geo IP Tracking Filter
    Block transactions from specific countries based on their IP addresses with this powerful location-dependent fraud monitoring tool.
  • Negative Database
    Identify fraudsters listed in the database by IP, email, or address. Create your own custom negative database, or choose to use BluePay’s global database — established and updated daily by our expert risk analysts.
