What do Stripe Risk Evaluations mean?

A Risk score of 65 or above indicates elevated risk.

Stripe processing includes a machine learning system that evaluates the risk level for each payment in real time. It uses hundreds of signals about each payment, and taps into data across the Stripe network to predict whether a payment is likely to be fraudulent.

Risk Score ranges from 0–99 to indicate the risk level on a more granular level. A score of 65 or above indicates elevated risk, while a score of 75 or above indicates high risk.
