The Risk Management page allows you to review transactions that have been held due based on our risk analysis. Sub-merchants (merchants housed under your primary account) and transactions are analyzed for risk mitigation before approval, and non-compliant submissions trigger alerts that cause the merchant or transaction to be held pending approval. Note that held merchants will be unable to access portal functions, and held transactions will not be processed.
On the Risk Management page, you can view a downloadable list of held merchants or transactions, access details about their risk factors, and approve or reject them.
Navigate to the Risk Management page by clicking Risk in the Admin category of the left-hand navigation panel.
