Note: This is the update from v5.5 and v9. You must have a valid Miva Central/Apps license key from previous versions 5.5 or 9 to install this update.
This new version adds the following features:
Integrates the minFraud antifraud system from MaxMind, the makers of the GeoIP® location database
and minFraud fraud screening and detection system, with Miva Merchant. MaxMind's fraud screening
service examines online transactions from various angles and applies extensive fraud screening
checks centered around IP geolocation, proxy detection, and reputation data. By leveraging
non-personally identifiable data from thousands of merchants and comprehensive analysis,
MaxMind's antifraud system is able to identify traits and patterns associated with fraudulent
- IP whitelisting - orders from whitelisted IPs will not trigger a fraud check.
- Detects browser's IP address even if the server is behind a proxy, load balancer or CDN.
- Includes component/item version for use with one-page checkouts or heavily modified stores where system extension
module version fires too often or not at all.
- Uses your global mail settings for sending notification emails.
This module will help stop credit card testing and fraudulent orders. It can save you money on
authorization fees, improve your merchant decline ratio, refund ratio and charge-backs - and
may qualify you for lower credit card fees. The module sends merchants a fraud analysis email
for each potential order or for only those exceed that exceed a preset risk score. If desired,
the module can also reject orders that exceed a preset risk score before the payment gateway is
contacted for credit card approval.
Fraud screening includes analysis of numerous factors including the geographical distance
between the location of the customer's browser to the claimed billing city, state and country;
high risk IP address analysis; location of customer's telephone number and postal code; free
and high-risk e-mail analysis; open proxy detection; shipping remailer detection, and more.
