How to Change Fraud Settings in Authorize.net

Step-by-step instructions on changing the fraud settings in your Authorize.net gateway.

It is important to review your fraud settings in Authorize.net in order to ensure they are appropriate for your organization. If a transaction triggers a fraud filter it will be held in your gateway until you approve it for processing or void it if you believe it is fraudulent. If a transaction is not approved or voided within 30 days it will expire and you will have to reach out to the cardholder if you need to rerun the transaction.
