Fraud detection is very important, and our Fraud Prevention and Risk Scoring module for Magento 2 will assist you in monitoring, detecting, and preventing fraud in your online store. This extension uses real-time fraud analysis from Maxmind, an industry-leading provider of IP intelligence and online fraud detection tools.  

The module determines the chance that a transaction is fraudulent based on multiple factors, including whether an online transaction comes from a high risk IP address, high risk email, high risk device, or anonymizing proxy. The module integrates Maxmind Risk Scoring service with your Magento 2 store and identifies risky orders to be held for further review.

For example, what if an order was placed from a computer in a suspicious country but the shipping address is in Germany? If this happens you should be able to identify those kind of orders. Suspicious orders will be flagged automatically by our extension. All your orders will be verified and scored for fraud risk using MaxMind minFraud service. Every order will get a score up to 100, which is the higher risk of fraud.


Account & Pricing

Separate from this extension, a Maxmind account is necessary, you can create one here after you install this extension. Additional fees, starting at only $0.005 per order, apply. For more information, visit the MaxMind pricing page.



The module installs into your Magento store without having to modifying your code. Order scores are displayed in the summary Sales Order view and detailed information about the order score (and elements that contributed to it) is visible in each individual order. After installation you just need to create a MaxMind account, fill in the credentials and your orders will be reviewed for fraud detection based on the risk threshold you set in admin, all orders which get a score above the threshold will appear in red and placed on hold for further review. Email notifications can be setup so you can receive an email whenever an potential fraudelent order is placed on hold for further review.
