Snare Labs offers small business tools to fight fraud. If you are concerned about suspicious credit card purchases made at your online store, we're here to help!

We can answer your questions. Where is your customer located? Does the US shipping or billing address exist? Is the credit card prepaid or international?
Our fraud fighting tools provide these answers and more. Plus, we'll keep track of your queries and alert you when you've already investigated a similar risky transaction.

Integrate Easily

We make it simple to use our API services to fight fraud in real time, as orders are placed on your system. Before deploying, test using a sandbox testing account with static data. As soon as you're ready, you can flip to the production API services!
We map the locations connected to the order you are investigating, so a quick glance will show you the distances between the billing address, the delivery address, and the distance to the IP address shown by the computer that made the order.
