What are the Authorize.net Velocity Filters and How do I Deactivate them?



Authorize.net's Velocity Filters limit the total number of transactions received Per Day, Per Hour or from the same IP Address. If you have configured your own Authorize.net account with RecDesk without going through GovtPortal, you will need to DISABLE (do not just increase) the Daily, Hourly , AND the Transaction IP Velocity Filters to prevent credit card transactions from going into a Pending for Review status on higher-volume days (more than 100 an hour).

Deactivating Authorize.net Velocity Filters

  1. Log in to Authorize.net and click on Fraud Detection Suite in the left-hand column


  2. Click Daily Velocity Filter (1)


  3. Uncheck Enable Filter and the click Save.


  4. Repeat #2 and #3 above for Hourly Velocity Filter and Transaction IP Velocity Filter (2 and 3).


This is very important to do if you configure your own Authorize.net account without going through GovtPortal. Be sure to disable the Daily, Hourly, AND the Transaction IP Velocity Filters.
