Menu> Payment > Authorization Blacklist Tab

Miva Merchant version 9.0005.3 added several features to protect your store from both manual and automated attacks.

  • Failed Authorization Delay: If a credit card fails authorization, you can optionally make the customer wait a certain amount of time before they can try again.
  • Invalidate Checkout Session After: Force customers to start the checkout process again if their credit card fails to authorize.
  • Use Authorization Token: Make sure that the credit card authorization request is coming from a human being and not a script.
  • Authorization Failures: You can view a record of every credit card authorization failure.
  • Authorization Blacklist: You can add IP addresses to a blacklist. Any customer who visits your store from a blacklisted IP address cannot use a credit card to make purchases.
  • reCAPTCHA: To prove a human being is visiting your store and not a script, customers must use a reCAPTCHA box before they can complete checkout.
