IPQS Proxy Detection API and Device Fingerprint Technology support additional parameters for the purposes of scoring transactions or users, detecting payment fraud, and providing real-time fraud prevention. This service is ideal for preventing chargeback fraud and performing advanced user scoring.
Additional user data for orders, transactions, lead generation, and personal user information can be analyzed to enhance Fraud Scores. The fields listed below are entirely optional and provide additional data that can be used to detect fraudulent patterns and behavior. Any additional data beyond the IP address greatly improves detecting high risk activity.
Risk analysis on transaction data will be displayed in the "transaction_details" object. If only one address is available for the user or transaction, then please enter the address data into the "billing" or "shipping" variables, rather than entering the same address in both variables. Passing the email address also contributes to detecting fraudulent users, however only a light abusive check will be performed. Using a full lookup with IPQS Email Verification API Documentation is recommended as it will provide greater details and accuracy for email reputation. The transaction variables listed below are optional, any irrelevant variables can be ignored.
Adjust IPQS order, user, and transaction scoring algorithms to better fit your audience. Premium IPQS clients can adjust your account's Transaction Rules for better performance and more tailored results.
Below you will find an example of using transaction scoring functionality with our Proxy/VPN Detection API. New to IPQS? View our base Proxy Detection API Documentation to get started.

The following variables are returned through the Proxy Detection API which provides risk analysis for users and transactions. You can also treat "billing" or "shipping" variables as a user's primary or secondary information group, even when billing is not involved, such as for lead generation or user scoring purposes.
These variables are active when at least 1 transaction data parameter is present in the API request. The following transaction variables are returned as booleans when populated or "null" when the necessary transaction parameters are not passed with the API request. For instance, not passing the "billing_email" will return "valid_billing_email" as null.
