What is Maxmind fraud scoring?
Maxmind uses industry leading technology to determine the likelihood that a transaction is fraudulent based on many factors, including whether an online transaction comes from a high-risk IP address, high-risk email account, high-risk device, or anonymising proxy. Maxmind's industry leading technology is tried and tested by us - we've used it on the Fooman website since 2011 as our own fraud defence.
Do I need a Maxmind account to use the fraud scoring feature?
Yes - a Maxmind account (version 1.2 or above) is needed. Maxmind offers a free trial account with 1000 free fraud checks. Additional checks are priced from $0.005 per transaction.
