Fraudulent orders end up costing you time and money. If a user's credit card is stolen, and used on your website, you will most likely end up with a chargeback. Now, you have shipped the item & must refund the money plus pay a small fee. This is a more common form, but there are others that you may not be as familiar with. This article on Printful discusses the common forms of fraud, and provides a list of common red flags:

  • First-time shoppers
  • Bigger than your average order
  • Fast shipping
  • Unusual location
  • Large quantity of the same product
  • Multiple shipping addresses (Unless you are on Shopify!)
  • Shipping / billing addresses don’t match
  • Multiple cards from a single IP address
  • Payment info in CAPS LOCK
  • Multiple transactions in a short time
