Take advantage of multiple layers of protection against fraudulent transactions.

✓ Recaptcha

Our scoring system detects bot-like activity typically associated with card testing attacks.

✓ Allowlist & Blocklist

Bolt-managed rules can block pre-authorization (blocklist) or skip risk review (allowlist).

✓ Risk Machine Learning

Bolt’s machine learning generates a score based on data points collected on the order; e.g., payment information, IP address, user behavior, personal identifiable information (PII).

✓ Risk Analyst Review

The top 3% of riskiest orders are sent to an analyst for qualitative review.

✓ Micro-Authorization

Bolt can issue micro-authorization transactions to verify that the shopper has access to the provided credit card account. This occurs in fewer than 1% of declined orders.

Merchants can view rejected order insights and request a re-review from Bolt for suspected false positives.
