Fraud Screening

The following section is only applicable for Merchants using a fraud screening service integrated with the Worldline payment services.

The fraud screening services will screen payment transactions prior to the payment authorization and return appropriate status:

  • PASSED
  • BLOCKED
  • NOT SCREENED
  • HOLD

All information about the fraud result is included in the FraudResult element structure within the TransactionResponse. Note that the FraudResult Code and Message fields includes more detailed information about why the payment transactions has been blocked, but should not be used for logical decisions on the client side as they may change over time.
