Basic Fraud Tools allow you to set up AVS, CVV, and risk threshold rules to help protect your account against carding attacks and other fraudulent activity. The benefits of Basic Fraud Tools include the following:

  • Customizable rules
  • No developer work required
  • Effective at limiting carding attacks
  • Available at no extra cost to all merchants, regardless of size or processing volume
  • Ability to override rejections for certain transactions

Basic Fraud Tools are not enabled on your account by default. To enable them, you’ll need to set up AVS, CVV, and/or risk threshold rules individually.


AVS and CVV rules only apply to credit card transactions. Risk threshold rules apply to both credit cards and certain Google Pay transactions.
