How to Set Up the Fraud Prevention Add-on

With our Fraud Prevention add-on, it's easier than ever to flag or even block commissions that are suspected of fraud.

First, you'll need to install this add-on from the Easy Affiliate > Add-ons page.

Once installed, head to Easy Affiliate > Settings > Affiliates tab > and scroll to the bottom.

There you'll see the following options:

Fraud Prevention add-on setup options

Own Referrals: This option determines how commissions are handled if an affiliate makes a purchase using their own affiliate link. If set to “Allow”, the commission will be allowed. If set to “Flag”, the commission will be allowed but will also be flagged as potentially fraudulent. If set to “Reject”, the commission will not be recorded.

Referring Sites: This option determines how commissions are handled when the site that referred the click is not one of the sites listed on the Affiliate Application. If set to “Allow”, the affiliate will be able to generate a commission from the click. If set to “Flag”, the affiliate will be able to generate a commission from the click, but the click and any subsequent transaction will also be flagged as potentially fraudulent. If set to “Reject”, the affiliate will not generate a commission from the click. If this option is greyed out, then you cannot use it unless you change your Affiliate Registration Type to “Application”.

Conversion Rate: This option determines how commissions are handled when the conversion rate falls outside the defined limits. This will not be enforced until the affiliate has generated at least 10 sales. If set to “Allow”, the commission will be allowed. If set to “Flag”, the commission will be allowed but will also be flagged as potentially fraudulent. The conversion rate is calculated as sales/clicks.
