Main overview

YITH WooCommerce Anti-Fraud solves this problem by blocking orders placed by possible scammers.

You obsessively take care of your site every day, you control everything, from the smallest expense to the pleasant income. Then, while you are checking every single order, you find out that you have to delete some of the sales because they are fraudulent purchases. Scams.

Do you know that in the event of fraudulent purchases made with a credit card,90% of the times the bank will compensate the buyer, thus making you lose the sale made and the product sold?

This plugin checks if there are suspicious actions during the purchase process by assigning them a coefficient of risk which will block the order automatically if it is too high, setting it as pending.
Meanwhile, you will receive an email and you will be free to discretely check the possible buyer, asking for more information before approving the purchase of the product and so on. Two simple words: goodbye scams!

YITH WooCommerce Anti-Fraud was designed appositely for all of those vendors that are tired to try the impossible in order to boost the number of their customers and their sales only to run into a huge rate of fraudulent purchases.

A fraudulent purchase affects your store in several ways:

  • It increases the risk of refunds for the vendor
  • It increases the risk of ending up into banks’ blacklists.
  • It makes vendors waste precious time while having to deal with every single fraudulent transaction.
  • It damages the public image of your company in the eyes of customers.

Scams are rising in numbers and as a vendor you have the right and the need to protect yourself, in order to create a truly functional store with no security weakness.

    Good toolI had some concerns about the effectiveness of this plugin, but I must say it works well. Once you understand how it works you can make it work very well. It cannot prevent any fraudulent orders, but helps skimming lots of them.

Here you can find some frequently asked questions about this plugin. If you can't find a reply to your doubts, ask a question: we will reply in a very short time
Topics:
  • All
  • General
  • Email
  • Price settings

How do I approve a sale that has been put on hold for risk?

You can simply change the order status into Completed from WooCommerce > Orders.

Is there a way to validate the email address before the purchase transaction completes? So if the email address is invalid it stops the transaction before the payment goes through.

The plugin can also apply fraud checks before submitting the checkout. The order is immediately canceled only when detecting a high-risk level.

The plugin appears to run a cron job every five minutes. Is that time frame necessary?

The cron job is necessary to run every five minutes for the PayPal check. The plugin needs the payment information that is sent by PayPal through IPN. It may happen that this IPN is not received immediately. So running the cron every 5 minutes is needed to not let these orders be on hold at a later time.

What happens with the blocked email address? Will it actually block the order, or does the order go through and we get some alert/notification that a blocked email address was used?

The order will not go through, as it will be stopped and go to the "Cancelled" status. You can refer to this page of the plugin documentation for more info.

Does the PayPal email verification only happen when the PayPal email differs from the order email?

The email verification is applied to the PayPal email as a security measure, regardless of the order emails. When the plugin is active and the users purchase through PayPal, they will receive a notification email with the procedure to verify the address. After that, if they will be inserted in the whitelist, PayPal will no longer require any further verification during the next purchases.

Does the plugin add any information to the order email that is sent to the customer and admin?

No, it does not. However, the plugin has an option through which it sends an email to the administrator that includes the anti-fraud test results. This email is generated for each order checked and is sent separately.

Can you set a price maximum?

There are two options to set the maximum price: 1) the order amount is calculated by a multiplier, that is, you can allow the order to exceed the average for a specific number of times. For example, if the order average amount is $500 and you set the multiplier as 2, the system will notify the risk when the order exceeds $1000. 2) You can set a maximum order amount not to be exceeded.

What is the risk threshold feature?

It is the risk percentage of the order generated based on the results of the anti-fraud check.

How does the plugin work with pending orders? Does it stop the process and the client has to go online again and go through with the payment after the approval?

The plugin applies its controls at the end of the payment process. If something wrong happens on the gateway, it doesn't apply any action. The controls occur when the payment goes through and it stops the order in case of possible risk of fraud.
