Fraud Prevention when opening to a large number of countries

We're going to be launching another US based e-commerce store in the near future, and this particular store is for a sport which is much more popular internationally than here in the states (though the sport is growing).

For our current online stores, I would say only about 10% of our customers are international and the countries that we ship to are limited. If an international order crosses our system I typically run a manual fraud check and either approve or deny them from our merchant account.

I was curious, are there any e-commerce players on the forum who do a good deal of international business? And if so, when you open up to 100+ countries how do you keep fraud to a minimum? I know in Authorize.net for example you can run various fraud filters (we do that) but this doesn't catch the sneaky fraudsters.

You might take a look at the Quantum gateway - they offer VBV / MSC, GeoIP, and calling the client at no extra charge. This is all implemented into the gateway so there is less programming to be done.

Soccer's never going to make it here. Ever. :)

It's not soccer - it's Underwater Motorcycling.
