Circuit Breaker allows you to create a blocklist that automatically blocks transactions based on your selected criteria. Simply choose your criteria, set a value for each one, and select ‘block’.
Transactions can be blocked by:
- Payer reference
- Document ID
- Email address
- Device fingerprint
- IP address
Of course, you also have control to unblock whenever you need to:
By gathering information from the hardware and software of the payer’s device, a ‘fingerprint’, or digital signature, is created. Volt automatically generates this fingerprint when the shopper reaches our checkout, so there’s no action required from you.
This is a unique reference used to identify a payer. It’s generated and sent by the merchant under payer > reference.
Document ID refers to a physical document that provides proof of a person’s identity, such as a tax ID or household bill. It is sent by the merchant under payer > documentId.
The payer’s email address, sent by the merchant under payer > email.
The IBAN used by the shopper, selected from a drop-down list.
The bank or bank branch used by the payer.
The IP address sent by the merchant under payer > ip.
Circuit Breaker is even more powerful when used alongside Volt Connect.
