What is custom country validation?

It’s easy to start an online business, but it’s never an easy task to combat fraud to prevent chargeback or losses. There are many aspects that you need to look into to effectively unveil a fraud order and this couldn’t be done manually without a right tool with right features. Here, I would like to share with you on how to flag an order for review for certain countries.

The reason to flag a country for review may be varies. It could be a high risk country based on your past experiences, or a country that you do not have business presence, or a cautious move for a new entering business territories, and so on. For whatever reason they could be, you can use the custom country validation rule to easily sort the transaction out. You can set the validation rules for the billing country and shipping country.
