Does WooCommerce Payments have any fraud prevention enabled?

WooCommerce Payments is built in partnership with Stripe, and leverages their fraud prevention tool, Radar. Radar’s functionality provides real-time fraud detection on every payment coming through your site and will block payments if necessary, before charges are placed. You can learn more about how Radar blocks payments here.

That said, no fraud prevention system can ever be perfect. Although it is rare, sometimes merchants may be affected by card testing attacks. You can learn more about card testing, and how to respond to such attacks, in this document.

As WooCommerce Payments continues to enhance its platform, we will be looking to add more fraud detection functionality for our merchants. Please feel free to submit feedback or other ideas on our ideas board.
