Making the right decision with concentrated expertise

It happens many millions of times every day: An order is received in the online shop. However, the place and time of order, the mobile phone used or the product itself do not give a complete picture or - in the case of regular customers – suddenly deviate greatly from the usual profile of the buyer.

There may be many reasons for this, from the order to the holiday destination to the new hobby. Nevertheless, the question immediately arises: Is there a fraud case here ? Or are just the circumstances unusual?

Automated test systems sometimes reach their limits here. It is therefore possible that purchase transactions are incorrectly classified as attempted fraud and rejected. What's left is a frustrated customer and lost business for the retailer. To prevent this from happening, we check ambiguous cases with Manual Order Review and thus ensure clarity.

How Manual Order Review Works


The order is received.


 Automatic fraud detection:

The order is automatically checked based on machine learning algorithms or rules. Additional criteria can also be agreed, including the length of time spent in the online shop or mouse movements on the screen.


Manual test process:

No clear decision possible? Then manual transaction monitoring is triggered: Fraud specialists match information such as address data, online activities, or whereabouts to verify the customer's identity.



The order is accepted or cancelled.


Payment process:

If the order has been accepted, the merchant forwards the data to the issuer via the acquirer and is informed when the money has been reserved.
