The Financials: Radar For Fraud Teams

Protect your payments from chargebacks by enabling Radar for Fraud Teams to your connected Stripe account!

What is Radar?

Radar is an added feature in Stripe that protects you from fraudulent payments. This includes options like 3D Secure which requires customers to complete an additional verification step with the card issuer when paying. Typically, that means that, when processing a payment, clients will be prompted to enter a password associated with the card or a code sent to their phone.  You will also be able to set a risk tolerance and create your own custom fraud rules. 

Payments that have been successfully authenticated using the 3D Secure portion of Radar are covered by a liability shift. Should a 3D Secure payment be disputed as fraudulent by the cardholder, the liability shifts from you to the card issuer.
