Risk Assessment Scoring

Risk Assessment Scoring provides insight into fraud signals at the transaction level. Pair Risk Assessment Scoring with Fraud Protection, or use it alone if you don’t need chargeback indemnification.

Without Fraud Protection

With Fraud Protection

How it Works

Each merchant-liable card transaction includes a risk assessment score and a breakdown of the influencing factors. These scores and factors come from the same models that power Bolt’s Fraud Protection product.

Our models use hundreds of indicators about each transaction and data across our network to assess risk. To indicate why a transaction received a certain score, we identify the factors with the highest impact on the score.


Bolt only provides risk scoring for card transactions. Alternative payment method transactions are not assessed for risk.
