How does the FraudLabs Pro service work?

FraudLabs Pro accepts online transactions data via its web programming interface (FraudLabs Pro API). The FraudLabs Pro analytic engine analyzes transactions parameters and reports fraud analysis in less than a second. Merchants can immediately decide next action based on fraud distribution score or custom rules by conditions. Further analysis of transactions is also available instantly in the merchant administrative interface.

How does the FraudLabs Pro algorithm work?

FraudLabs Pro has evolved from a blacklist based algorithm to machine learning-based algorithm in fraud detection. Merchants can enhance the algorithm by accepting or rejecting any real-life transactions to improve the classification process.

We also perform screening of IP address, email address, credit cards and devices based on moderated crowd-sourcing data. These high-quality blacklists can catch fraud occurrence effectively.
