Checkout is a payment form that allows you to accept payments online. You will want to implement safeguards to prevent malicious intent when sharing the link publicly (like on your website).
Understanding all the options available to safeguard your payment form will help educate you on best practices, and ensure you are making the best decision for your business.
- Some of these suggestions require development work, please consult with your own technical team or developer for assistance.
How to best secure your Checkout?
If you are redirecting users from a website in order to accept payments, implementing security tools on the website will be the most proactive and effective deterrent for fraud mitigation.
- Implement a CAPTCHA to be required before the customer is redirected to checkout; this will ensure a person, and not a robot, is making a legitimate purchase, as well as mitigate carding attempt and any scripted attacks.
- Requiring consumers to log in in order to access the checkout. This login “wall” can deter malicious use.
- Enforce IP and geolocation restrictions or other enforced checks. You can track who is accessing your website and where they are located. This can be especially useful if you only sell your services/products to customers in certain locations. Filtering out ineligible users can tighten access privileges.
- Check with web developers and security professionals to see if there are other options available to your business for your website.
- Add some additional security restrictions within the Order Settings.
