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.

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.
Thank you so much for the review, Sally! We're always happy to help you get the fraud detection system working the way your business runs. We're here to help your business grow and we're looking forward to working together!

Useless - £1000 order was not marked as fraud, was 'successfully verified' and a chargeback is open.
Hello, we did a little investigation on the order and it looks like this order was received and processed before you installed Beacon for less than 1 hour. Our system is always monitoring and doing its best to prevent fraud activities and it works best once you are able to learn all the features of the app and are able to fine-tune the fraud system. The verification section of the app is only a small part of the fraud detection process.
Please contact us directly and we'd be happy to go over the order and help you directly,

This service makes going through potentially fraudulent orders so much easier. It tells you exactly what might be wrong with the order and also automates a text verification if an order is flagged by a set amount of factors. You can also have people verify via email. We've been using Beacon for a month now and its the best fraud filter app we have come across. The pricing is beyond reasonable as well.
