Beagle (free) rules

Beagle allows merchants to set rules which determine which transactions are processed and which are declined. These rules are fully customisable to suit various business types – for example, a business which only sells to Australian customers might choose to block all international transactions.

Merchants also have the option of flagging high-risk transactions rather than blocking them, and receiving an email whenever a sale violates one of Beagle's rules.

Setting your Beagle rules

Merchants can login to MYeWAY to choose one or more of the following Beagle rules:

Rule Description Actions
Country Matching Block transactions if the countries of the IP address, billing address, and credit card do not match. Block/Allow
Australia Only Transactions Block transactions if the country of the card issuer, billing address or IP address are not Australia. Block/Allow
High Risk Country Block transactions if the IP address or billing address is in a high-risk country (such as Ghana, Nigeria or Vietnam). Block/Allow
Anonymous Proxy Block transactions if the IP address is an anonymous proxy (these are used to bypass geolocation controls, and are therefore very high risk). Block/Allow
Transparent Proxy Block transactions if the IP address is in our database of transparent (high risk) proxy servers. Block/Allow
Free Email Block transactions if the cardholder uses a free email address, which can't be traced to a physical location (such as hotmail or gmail). Block/Allow
Maximum Risk Score Block transactions if the risk score is greater than the level specified by you. Block/Allow

If a rule is set to block, any transaction which violates this rule will not be sent to the merchant's bank for processing. Merchants can also set the way in which they will be notified if a rule is breached. Email alerts provide the opportunity to contact the customer for more information, ensuring that the purchase is genuine before delivering the goods.
