Fraud Prevention

Fraud costs merchants billions of dollars each year. We offer a variety of features to help protect your business. In fact, other payment gateways charge additional fees for features that are automatically included with an Authorize.Net Payment Gateway account.

  • Address Verification Service (AVS) and Card Code Verification (CCV) provide a high level of protection as part of our standard payment gateway features.
  • Authorize.Net’s Fraud Management Department is dedicated to educating merchants on how to use security features, as well as helping them detect and prevent suspicious transactions.
