Fraud Filter

Fraud Filter is an app by Shopify that allows you to create custom filters to prevent fraud.

It allows you to create rules which either warn or cancel orders when they are triggered. These rules include IP addresses, physical addresses, emails and more.

Fraud Filter does not block orders but is able to cancel them after the fact. This had led store owners to complain that are they still losing money to payment processing fees.
