Fraud Prevention

Fraud prevention is crucial to maintaining the security of your online business. Pelcro takes a variety of different precautionary methods to ensure that your data and online operating experience are safe and secure when using the platform. We have 3 main fraud prevention options;

  • Risk Assesment Feature
  • Customer Email Verification
  • CVC Credit Card Check

Risk Assessment

Protecting your site from Fraud can be essential to your business. Malicious software and abusive activities are very common on the internet, and protecting your site from fraud will provide you with a more seamless experience with Pelcro. Some examples of fraudulent activity:

  • Card Testing Attack: Card testing is a type of fraudulent activity where someone tries to determine if stolen card information can be used to make purchases.
  • Account Creation Fraud: This relates to any customer account created using fraudulent information.

Those fraudulent activities can be monitored by Pelcro while leveraging reCAPTCHA which is a system that enables web hosts to distinguish between human and automated access to websites.

In order to activate this feature, please follow the instructions below:
1. IMPORTANT: This feature is only supported with our default UI and version 2.6.0+ of our react elements. If you have your own implementation or if you're unsure, please contact [email protected] or your Account Manager before enabling.

Risk Assessment

5. Risk Assessment is now activated on your site. Please make sure that you have followed the steps carefully.

Customer Email Verification

The Customer Email Verification feature on Pelcro, if enabled, will require your customers to verify their email. Pelcro will send out an email with a verification link to your customers. If they do not verify their email, they will have limited access to the Pelcro features such as subscriptions and e-commerce purchases.

This can greatly support you in Fraud Prevention as the customers will have limited functionality until they verify that they are using a real email.

If you would like to activate this feature, please make sure you have the updated version (3.0.0) of React Pelcro JS. If you're not sure, please contact your account manager.

To activate this feature, go to your settings page on Pelcro, click on 'Settings', and then scroll down to 'Customer email verification' and enable the feature.

CVC Credit Card Check

When the option for "Decline credit cards when CVC check is set to unavailable" is enabled, only credit cards used for payment that has passed CVC checks would be allowed to complete a transaction.
