The Order Rules Screen

A description of the screen used to view and manage order rules.

The Order Rules Screen is used to manage and create Order Rules.

Important: Please review our other articles on order rules before creating rules.

Order Rules can impact your order processing—they need to be implemented very carefully.

Order Rules can be used for the following actions: changing an order's risk level via the NS8 Status field, requesting SMS verification, placing orders on hold, or canceling orders.

Please note - Order Rules will not change the EQ8 score.

Order Rules will override the risk status NS8 has applied to an order, but Order Rules will not change its EQ8 Score. For example, if an order has an EQ8 Score of 700 (very good), but is quarantined by an Order Rule as high risk, the EQ8 Score will still be 700.

Order Rules are applied in the order they are displayed on the screen from top to bottom. When an order meets the conditions of a rule, NS8 Protect will execute that rule and no further rules will run. Rule hierarchy is an important consideration when designing rules to achieve your expected result.
