Review a minFraud Transaction

You can use the minFraud transactions page to review any previously submitted transactions through your account portal. This feature is available to admin users and standard users with product/service permissions. Learn more about user permissions.

In addition, you could integrate the minFraud service to take risk scores and risk data returned through API queries and incorporate this data into your own review system. Full integration documentation, which developers and engineers can use to integrate minFraud API responses into a local system, can be found on our developer portal.

How to review a minFraud transaction through the account portal

Click on 'minFraud Transactions' in the minFraud menu in your account portal [direct link, login required].


The minFraud transactions page will display a list of transactions submitted by your account. By default, this page will display up to 50 transactions submitted in the last 30 days, but you can filter, search, and change the number of transactions displayed per page. Learn more about the log of minFraud transactions, and how to search your transactions.

When you have found the transaction you want to review, click on the linked transaction ID in the transaction ID column.


Reading your minFraud transaction review screen

The minFraud transaction review screen displays a lot of information. Some of this information is only available if the transaction was run through the minFraud Insights or minFraud Factors service. Learn more about the differences between the minFraud services.


On this screen, you can find, from top to bottom and left to right:

  1. The transaction disposition, which is "accept" (by default), "reject," "review," or "test." Learn more about custom rules and dispositions.
  2. A widget you can use to report the transaction. Learn more about reporting transactions.
  3. The overall risk score. Learn more about the overall risk score.
  4. The risk factor scores, for transactions submitted to minFraud Factors. Learn more about the risk factor scores.
  5. The IP risk score. Learn more about the IP risk score.
  6. The IP risk reasons, for transactions with an IP risk score greater than 0.01 which were submitted to minFraud Insights or Factors. Learn more about the IP risk reasons.
  7. The minFraud ID of the transaction. If you keep a local log of your minFraud responses, you can use this ID to find the transaction. See the full API specification for the minFraud ID on our developer portal.
  8. The time that the transaction was submitted.
  9. The IP address that was submitted for the transaction. You can click on the linked IP address to see a list of all transactions submitted with this IP address. This can be used to see all activity from a particular IP.
  10. The minFraud Alert status, if this order was subject to a minFraud Alert. Learn more about minFraud Alerts.
  11. The risk data, for transactions that were submitted to minFraud Insights or minFraud Factors. Learn more about risk data.
  12. The inputs submitted for this transaction. You can compare the inputs listed here against your local record to check for any discrepancies if you are troubleshooting. In general, passing more inputs to minFraud makes risk scoring more accurate. Learn more about passing inputs to minFraud.

Set a disposition

If you're using the account portal for manual review, and you have custom rules set that flag certain transactions for manual review, you can update the disposition of those transactions from the account portal. Learn more about custom rules and dispositions.


If the transaction has its disposition set to "manual review," you can click on the "accept" or "reject" buttons to change the disposition.
