Sift Science Integration
The need to leverage machine learning in protecting against fraud becomes increasingly valuable as payment volume scales. With this in mind, many Dwolla API Partners look for the right solution to help manage risk for their ACH payments.
Often, we see Partners choosing to use Sift Science in order to better monitor and protect against fraud. We understand the value Sift’s real-time risk scoring model can provide our Partners, so we’ve integrated the service right into the Dwolla API.
