Fraud is well known plague for any online business owner and while some payment processors can detect fraudulent orders, your billing platform should create first line of defence against fraud before it hits payment gateway and eventually your pocket to protect your business from costly chargebacks.
New version of HostBill is available, next to exciting developer updates we’ve introduced two modules you might find useful:
Extended Fraud Protection
A Web-Hosters community powered fraud protection module. Next to standard HostBill fraud prevention you will also gain access to HostBill’s webhosting fraudsters IP database – to lower risk of fraud and chargebacks.
SMS Verification Plugin
Verify your client’s identity and phone numbers with this simple, yet powerful plugin – use built-in sms notification plugins (or easily build your own) to send clientarea PIN protection code after signup.
