Stop fraud before checkout : Snip fraud in the bud. Prevent chargeback fraud before it even reaches checkout.
Avoid international headaches : Avoid compliance or regulation issues outside of your primary market.
Block visitors from unwanted countries with ease. Control which countries cannot enter your store. Unwanted visitors will be outright blocked from visiting your store.
Avoid expensive and time consuming chargebacks, fraudulent ad clicks & chargeback fees before fraudulent customers can even reach checkout.
For example, retailers selling digital goods "ship" instantly. This prevents the retailer blocking the shipment of the order once they realize the order is fraudulent. Embargo prevents fraudulent digital downloads before the bad actor is able to complete checkout.
Pass on international import or export regulations for countries you don't want to do business in.
Blockage will block visitors from countries your store doesn't support before an order is made.
Embargo uses as proprietary database to turn your customers' IP address into their real world location within milliseconds. Then it will verify that the visitor is allowed to enter your site based on the countries you selected in the app.
