About the Merchant Account Fraud Mappings Form

The Fraud Mappings sub-type records list the merchant account fraud mappings for this merchant account. This feature enables an organization to perform real-time authorization and fraud evaluation while helping to distinguish between legitimate shoppers and fraudulent users in a single transaction request. Note that an organization typically must subscribe to the merchant account's Fraud Prevention services to successfully utilize this feature.

Merchant account fraud mappings are listed on the Merchant Account Fraud Mappings tab of the Merchant Accounts record.

Each record specifies one field in Aptify that maps to a parameter used by the merchant account when performing fraud checks. Then, while processing a payment, Aptify passes the value of the specified field to the processor.
