Hope you are having fun time during winter. We are excited to deliver the new Realex Payments extension improvements and updates. Let's see how new Realex Payments extension 2.1.2 and 2.1.3 versions can improve your sales, security and user experience.

Fraud Management Support

The Realex Payments module already includes support for Fraud Checks when using Hosted Payment Page integration type. It has been introduced back in December 2016. We have added Fraud Management support for the Remote Integration type.

With this change you can get full control of your Fraud Management together with Realex Payments. Fraud Management allows you to configure 30+ configurable fraud checks to effectively and quickly pinpoint fraudulent transactions. Once Fraud Checks are configured via Realex Payments RealControl panel you may screen transactions against your own fraud blacklist, detect anomalies through pattern checking and data sanity checking and tailor your fraud checks to your business requirements to reduce false positives.

From configuration point of view, Realex Payments module has no changes compare to previous versions. Fraud Management section in Magento Admin can be found at Stores -> Configuration -> Sales -> Payment Methods -> Realex Payments -> Fraud Management.
