Fraud Filter , 195 reviews
I installed this because the app is advertised as being able to "block" a customer from ordering, but that is false advertising. You can only cancel the order or send yourself a warning. So I uninstalled it. Absolutely terrible.
Pretty poor. All criteria has to be met for it to work. so if you put a name and an address for example, both would have to match in order for the filter to be applied. Then if the person simply changes their address it wouldn't work. This means in order for it to be effective you have to create 100's of separate filters for each rogue customer. It would instantly transform this app with the simple addition of giving us the choice to add filters with an AND/OR option but considering everyone have been requesting this same feature for almost 2 years I doubt they will implement it. You just get a canned uninterested response saying. "we will pass on the request to our engineers" Don't bother with this app it wont do what you want it to.
Hi, there. Thank you for sharing your feedback. We can see why adding additional options to the logic rules would be beneficial to prevent recurring orders. We would be happy to pass your feedback along to our developers for future considerations. Cheers! -Mac, Shopify Support
I use it since 2 years approx and it helps but some people can order under another name ??? So, I have tried to add many filters about names and will see what this does. But I check where every customer lives by googling them and check where they live and if their adresses matches the one they entered, all good. Also if they are not regular customers, will turn down the shipping in a different location than the billing. The crooks are insistant though, They call and try to defend their points even if their story is a joke
We have set it up as we get a warning, not the order cancelled automatically. After doing my research, I decide and cancel the order becase we have accepted the charge . We also have set up that we have to accept the charge instead of automatic. It gives us time to look into them and no need to refund since they were never charged. But anything suspiscious, am not risking. I do offer them to ship to stores near them so they can go buy directly and even save on shipping fees, and funny enough, had one fake buyer residing 2 blocks away from one of our buyer (store) and another, 4 blocks away, and in both cases, they refused so, we know it is a gimmick.
En general es bastante útil, ayuda a detectar la gran mayoría de intentos de estafa, pero la automatización de reglas es complicada de utilizar y no encontré ninguna manera de que cancele de manera automática los pedidos con alta posibilidad de fraude.
Avoid this app, don't waste your time on it. I am still getting orders from the customers who are blocked for filing false charge backs. This is create a rule by identifying all the key indicators which can identify the customers. For example: IP, Shipping address, phone number, card# etc. It doesn't even give a hint that this customer is on the block list. I email shopify support about it, but didn't get a resolution.
Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, we truly appreciate it. I'm sorry to hear the filters you've set up in the app don't seem to be working as expected. I'd encourage you to connect with our Live Support Team using this link (https://bit.ly/3c5icUc) so you can work with one of our advisors to get this resolved. - Blair, Shopify Support
It won't allow you to make a requirement for the BILL TO and SHIP TO addresses to be the same. This is key to stopping fraud for us. Credit card owner is never the person fraudulently using the card, and buying and having delivered our products. It is going to a different home address. Therefore making it obvious that two different addresses are needed in defrauding a company of their consumer good. Basic knowledge in fraudulent activity and easy solve for Shopify but they haven't.
Thank you for your review. I can definitely appreciate your need to prevent orders with high risk status. As such, I have shared your feedback with our developers for consideration.
In the meantime I do want to draw your attention to Shopify's built in fraud detection (https://bit.ly/3SAfef3) services. By switching to manual payment captures (https://bit.ly/3ZgomYY) and reviewing each flag you can choose to decline such orders. -Olivia, Shopify Support
I'm disappointed that there are only "AND" statements, not "OR". We should be able to put all banned customers in one single rule instead of creating a separate rule for every customer which gets messy and is not useful.
Also, it should be a function in the original Shopify to be able to ban customers from VISITING our webiste + ORDERING on it, not a separate app. I'd prefer some people not to have access to my store at all, cause they can still go around and do damage to my reputation by spamming negative reviews in an abusive way or spam customer service.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We appreciate your business needs and this helps us better our products and offerings in the future. I have shared your comments back with our product development team for consideration. -Olivia, Shopify Support
I don't recommend it. The parameters are extremely limited, I put in some straightforward ones just to try to get it to work at all and those didn't work. Support was not helpful and just gave me a list for better apps that are not free instead of understanding this app enough to help me get an use out of it. You should also have a couple of examples that would commonly be used and actually work with the app.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback here. I would encourage you to contact support again with some concrete examples of orders that met your parameters and still came through. If the parameters aren't working as expected, our support team should be able to help you troubleshoot those or escalate you to a technical specialist.
As well, I can definitely appreciate how helpful it would be to have a help doc of example perameters. I'll be sure to pass that on to our development team as a request. Thank you. - Brie, Shopify Support
It's a good app and adequately blocks customers. For anybody complaining about the app not working, for the blocking feature to work the filter must contain all of the attributes to block the customer. For example, when setting up a filter, only include one attribute because for the filter to work it needs to meet all of the attributes. 10/10
This isnt terrible, honestly. The only probalem is that you need to set up one rule for email, then another rule for address and another rule for name. The more criteria you have on a rule the less effective it is. This is good at setting up single point rules. Such as email block. But not email + address.
Hey, there. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review for Fraud Filter. We appreciate the feedback you've provided us here.
