Use blocklists to prevent fraud and criminal activity. Blocklists are lists of customer attribute values that are blocked from buying from you. For example, if a customer attempts to make a purchase from you with a credit card or fingerprint that is in a blocklist, the transaction is blocked and will not be processed.
Before a new transaction is processed in Rebilly, blocklists are examined to check for attributes related to the entity. If a match is detected, the operation is aborted.
Rebilly provides the following blocklist attributes:
- Customer IP address: IP address of the customer making the purchase.
- Customer email: Email address of the customer making the purchase.
