In general, our solution works with most of the payment gateway. It is because our API only acts as an additional fraud screening layer prior to the payment gateway submission. Below are the tutorials of how to integrate our fraud detection solution with the payment gateway:

You can get you API key (or License key , the terms used interchangeably) on the Merchant Control Panel->Accounts page. You may have multiple API key if you signed up for multiple paid plans.

We do not provide chargeback insurance or chargeback protection. FraudLabs Pro prevents chargebacks by leveraging machine learning and big data. We strongly believe that credit card frauds can be avoided effectively with sharing of responsibility among e-commerce merchants, payment gateways and fraud screening service providers.
