Forter is a fraud prevention platform that leverages user behavior & transaction-level information in combination with machine learning to detect fraudulent transactions and avoid chargebacks.
It is integrated with the MENU platform to enable Brands to leverage the Forter platform for fraud detection.
The integration contains two main components:
Client-side SDK integrations (Native iOS & Android SDKs + JS Library for Web): Used to collect user-level information & behavioral data
Backend Validation API integration: After the payment authorization, a call is made to Forter’s Validation API to receive an assessment on whether the transaction is legitimate or fraudulent. In case the transaction is fraudulent, the payment authorization is voided and the order processing is aborted.
NOTE: The Account API is out of scope
