How does your app work with Shopify?

Beacon is constantly monitoring all customer activities and analyzing for any orders with bad data that looks suspicious for things like VoIP, multiple accounts, or an unusually high amount of spending, and many more customizations for each shop.

The system works by ingesting customer information like name, phone number, and other data points and extracts new data that can highlight a risky order. Any bad data detected is displayed through the main data table of Beacon. The longer a merchant has Beacon installed, the more effective the system can be at detecting suspicious activities.

If an additional fraud check is needed, Beacon can send a special and simple text verification message to customers for additional verification checks. Our SMS system is able to extract additional data to better and quickly identify bad actors and allow the merchants to make better-informed decisions.

How will this change the look of my store?

A special verification page is generated when Beacon is installed. This verification page can be found under the template menu with the file name, "pages.verify.liquid".

How do I get started?

Merchants will be prompt with a simple welcome screen to help understand the app based on merchant business needs.

    Awesome app! We've had quite a bit of fraud over the years due to the type of products we sell and have used various apps but this is by far the best we've used! It gives you so much control over so many variables to accept orders or not. Even better is the customer service, they'll help you get things set up and customized for your store. Also so far it seems like they're actively working on new features in the background.

    We started using Beacon to help us police promo code abusers. We were seeing that people kept taking intro deals using new email addresses to continually purchase first-time starter packs. For this problem in particular it took a little time for Beacon to get enough data into their system, but it's really working well now. The most important thing I would highlight is that they are very receptive to feedback finetuning their app to help you get what you need.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review our app! We're happy to know that Bacon has become an integral part of the order processing to help you detect for any suspicious activities for promotional abuse fraud. We look forward to working with you to further improve Beacon's functionality and add more tailored customizations and automations.

    Provided you get the settings correct for your needs then this is a really great app. The developers are super helpful and will work with you to get your settings right. They are very responsive and quickly fix any issues that arise. Those who have left negative reviews were probably running with the default settings. If you do not configure the settings you actually need then you cannot blame the app for working in a way you might not have expected. So, please ensure you configure it appropriately from the offset and reach out to the developers if there is anything you don't understand. We are very pleased with this app - we have not been running it for long and it has already helped us to prevent a fraudulent transaction.
