How does your app work with Shopify?
Beacon is constantly monitoring and analyzing bad data that looks suspicious for things like VoIP, multiple accounts, or an unusually high amount of spending.
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 our main data table. The longer a merchant has Beacon installed, the more effective the system can be.
If an additional fraud check is needed, Beacon can send a special and simple text verification message to customers for additional verification. Our SMS system is able to extract additional data to better and quickly identify bad-actors.
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 of, "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.

This is a great fraud app available on shopify. I have used Nofraud, NS8, and others. This beats all of them, they use simple tools like phone verification, detects VOIP, detects multiple orders, detects duplicate IP, Detects carrier name and many other features. Jason who is the lead, listens to concerns and address them. Thank you
We've been using this app for the last two years. It helped us save money from chargebacks and allowed us to verify customers instantly.
The app phone verification is very important to secure my shop. And Beacon support team is great. I changed my shop domain and beacon support team has solved all my issues very well after the change. My shop works just fine now.
