MaxMind minFraud for Arastta

Updated on Dec 10, 2015

Arastta supports the highly recommended minFraud service provided by the company MaxMind. Screening over 50 million transactions per month, MaxMind is the industry’s leading provider of online fraud detection tools. With its network of trusted IPs minFraud can isolate potential fraudulent cases by scoring the chance of a transaction being a fraud. The user can decide the score-frame in which transactions should be considered fraud and not be completed.


To activate the minFraud for your Arastta store, you will need to get a MaxMind License Key via the official website of the company. Here you can sign-up for a free trial account that contains a license key and 1,000 free queries for the standard service as well as 100 free queries for the premium service. You will need an email account associated with your company/domain name in order to pass the security measures of the registration form. 


Now you will need to login to your admin dashboard and navigate to System>Settings.

Click on the Fraud tab and you will see the following options:
