We’ve Got Your Back – Fraud Protection

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Kount to provide you with world-class fraud prevention technology. We have successfully completed BETA testing and are releasing to GA two fraud prevention services, Managed and Merchant Configurable; both are integrated with BuyNow Hosted Checkout Pages, the Payment Plus API, and the Payment API.

  • Managed fraud prevention is an upgrade for merchants using BlueSnap’s existing fraud prevention system. We’ll continue to manage fraud for you, and this service will be included with BlueSnap’s payment processing.Merchants on Managed fraud prevention can customize AVS and CVV fraud rules in the SnapConsole, and will benefit from more advanced fraud rules implemented by BlueSnap fraud analysts.

    No action is required. You will be automatically upgraded to the Managed offering on our new fraud prevention system in the coming months. You’ll receive an email from us before and after the upgrade.

  • Merchant Configurable is the first of two premium fraud prevention services to be released this year. From the SnapConsole, subscribers can customize blacklists, velocity checks, and other key fraud rules.
  • Enterprise fraud prevention will be released later this year. This service will offer unlimited opportunities for merchants to customize their fraud prevention strategy using Kount’s web console.

New Stopped Fraud Report

We have also created a new report to accompany our new fraud prevention services. The Stopped Fraud report is available to merchants that enroll in the Merchant Configurable fraud prevention service. For a specified date range, the report lists all orders that were declined as a result of your fraud settings. You can use this report to determine if your fraud rules are stopping too many transactions and need to be relaxed.

You can access the Stopped Fraud report from the Reports tab on the SnapConsole, with our other reporting options.

Infrastructure Upgrade

Our processing platform is now operating on the Java 8 runtime environment. This upgrade will allow us to maintain a high level of system security and implement enhancements more quickly.

Improved Error Code Details

In our last release we made improvements to return a common set of codes across acquirers in our APIs. We’ve continued our effort to improve the quality of our error codes and now provide additional details.

Our new error code details will help you identify errors so that you can assist shoppers in completing their orders. If you are using the current acquirer error codes already, you do not have to change your integration.

Stop Chargebacks before they happen with Verifi

We have partnered with Verifi to offer you access to their Cardholder Dispute Resolution Network? (CDRN) This chargeback management program redirects disputes from the issuer to the merchant and gives you a chance to respond and resolve the issue directly with the shopper. CDRN can prevent up to 40% of fraud and non-fraud chargebacks. Contact merchant support to get started today.
