Understanding the control process

The Advanced risk assessment feature can be called up to 4 times during the creation of a payment:

  • after validation of the input data,
  • after performing 3D Secure authentication,
  • after authorization,
  • after making a call to a risk analyzer (e.g. CyberSource).

With each call, this feature potentially returns one or more actions that will impact the payment process. All types of payments (single payment, single payment with the due date exceeding 6 days, installment payment, cascading payment, etc.) are subject to the controls of the Advanced risk assessment.


In case of unavailability, incorrect configuration or malfunction, the payment is made as if the merchant did not have the advanced risk assessment feature.
