Approaches to Testing

In order to test the minFraud service you will need to purchase service credit or be approved for a free trial. You can buy service credit or request a free trial of minFraud on our main website.

Watch a short video explaining the testing methods available for the minFraud service.

You can test the minFraud service manually, for a quick proof of concept and to get a feel for the kinds of inputs and outputs that the service handles, or you can test the minFraud service using a full or partial integration so that you can see how it works in a development environment.

Manual testing methods

You can do quick testing of the minFraud service manually by submitting transactions for scoring using your account portal.

Watch a short video explaining how to use the minFraud query form to do quick, manual testing of the service.

The minFraud query form allows you to manually submit transaction data to the minFraud Score, Insights, or Factors services and view the risk evaluation results immediately. Querying the minFraud service through the form consumes service credit at the per-query rate for the selected service type. The form accepts a subset of the possible inputs the minFraud service can receive through an API request.

Learn more about submitting minFraud queries using the account portal, and learn more about reviewing minFraud transactions using the account portal.

Integration testing

You can do a full test of the minFraud service using one of our client APIs, or our REST API. Read a quick-start technical integration guide on our developer's site.

Watch a short video about our developer’s resources for integrating the minFraud services.

Our API documentation includes comprehensive instructions with code examples. Your account ID number and license key, available through the account portal, is used to authenticate API requests. Learn more about license keys.

Our APIs handle sending a request and receiving back the response. Implementing the data we return in the query response would then be handled in your own custom integration code.
