- Fraud Prevention Using Phone Verification
TeleSign is a pre-payment processing
telephone verification service, which can substantially reduce fraudulent credit
card transactions. TeleSign verifies that the customer phone number is legitimate
before sending the payment information to the payment processor. It stops most
third-world credit card fraud and ensures that payment transactions are not submitted
as part of an automated process.
TeleSign verification is activated in
the AShop Deluxe administration panel by entering a TeleSign account number. If
the field is blank, the verification process is deactivated and the payment form
posts directly to the payment gateway when it is submitted.
