How do I enable fraud filters on my PayPal powered by Braintree account?

When you are fully approved for PayPal powered by Braintree you are provided with a basic set of fraud filters to help combat fraud on your account. PayPal and other fraud management vendors can provide more filters to help you take control of your business.

Here's how to enable fraud filters on your PayPal powered by Braintree Control Panel.

  1. Log in to your Control Panel.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Select Processing.
  4. Edit AVS and CVV under basic credit card fraud filters.

Postal Code does not match (when provided) (N)
Postal Code not provided (I)

Note that AVS rules only check the numeric values of an address. We generally don't recommend enabling Street Address Verification. For example if a customer lives at 12345 6th street, depending on how they enter the information it could confuse the system and cause false rejections.

CVV does not match (when provided) (N)
CVV not provided (I)
