Helcim Defenders help you evaluate the risk of a transaction based on several different factors.

New Helcim accounts created from February 2, 2021 or later will have Helcim Defender enabled automatically.

You can configure your Helcim Defender settings by clicking on the Settings icon and selecting Helcim Defender under Security Settings.

The Helcim Defender is an estimation of risk based on transaction factors listed below. There are no guarantees made on the transaction or chargeback outcome.

To begin using Helcim Defender toggle the radio button for Defender Status to On. Next, set the Ecommerce Automatic Protection and Settings fields. AVS Auto-Void: Toggle the radio buttons from On and Off. If the AVS comes back without a match, it will decline the transaction. Learn more about what the different AVS responses mean here.

  • Accepted AVS: The AVS response codes that would be accepted for address verification
  • Defender Auto-Void: Toggle the radio buttons from On and Off. If the score comes back below the score minimum, the transaction will be voided by Helcim Defender
  • Score Minimum: The minimum out of 10 that would automatically void the transaction, you can adjust this value using the drop-down menu. A score of 0 indicates a high risk transaction, while a score of 10 indicates a low risk transaction. Click Save to apply your changes.
