When you account is created, it is created with based first admin master user (i.e. Business admin). The master user allow you to create additional users in the system and apply different permissions to different users.
There are 2 different user types, which you can apply different type of permissions (see below).
Business Admin - master user, that created on account creation by Appfront
Location Admin - a user that have an access to specific locations only
The business admin has an unlimited access to everything - no limited to locations and/or permissions types
The "Location Admin" only have an access to specific locations (can be one or more), and the business admin is the one that grant an access to the location admin.
Under store level access, there are a few different permissions:
Store level access, with permission to update / edit hours, close/open store, and everything under the store location page. Was built for store managers - mainly.
Opens the campaigns / marketing function access. User will be able to run campaigns but only target the location customers. Mainly for store owners / marketing team.

The fraud prevention feature will help you keep track of suspicious behaviors, and prevent repetitive fraud. By automatically marking orders as suspicious, alerting you to collect more information from the customer (for dispute purposes), and even blocking customers according to details like phone numbers and delivery addresses.
From the customer's profile you can block existing customers. Once blocked the customer wouldn't be able to order anymore. Our system block customers by their phone number, email and a few other parameters (that we prefer not to mention) - so this customer wouldn't be able to order anymore.

Under the "Fraud Prevention" tab (on the new portal) -
ENTER an address - enter a specific address to the search bar in the upper-left corner.

This option allows the customer within the area to process an order, but, it will print a warning message on the check printed in the business. You can customize the warning message printed on the check. It is recommended to create an indicative message to remind of the issue that arose in this area.
This is in order to warn the staff and allow them to decide whether to continue with the order, or, alternatively, contact the customer for additional information in order to verify his identity, for example.
This option will block customers within the selected area from processing their orders.
The customers will go through the regular flow of creating their order, but, upon placing it - they will encounter an error message preventing them from paying and processing the order to your business.
