Real time fraud prevention

The "3rd man real time fraud prevention" is available for a live account only. If you are using a live account and would like to enable the real time fraud checking, follow the instructions in the installation section below.

Apps folder

In EPiServer Commerce 7.5, the Apps folder is located in the EPiServer Commerce Manager Shared Files Folder, typically C:\EPiServer\<YourCommerceManagerSite>\eCommerceFramework\5.3\Shared.

If your Commerce Manager site has been updated to the latest version via NuGet, the Apps folder should be located in the wwwroot folder, typically E:\ EPiServer \<YourCommerceManagerSite>\wwwroot\Apps.

Refer to this Apps folder as your corresponding path for the Apps folder mentioned below.

  1. Start by downloading the DataCash module project files.
  2. Open the EPiServer.Business.Commerce.Payment.DataCash project.
