Came up with an awesome mod for the Order Manager screen tonight.  It highlights orders that are placed from non-US IP addresses.  This makes it incredibly easy to identify potential fraud orders in your storefront.

This mod works with a local GeoIP database too, so there’s no lookup limits or bandwidth spikes to worry about.

Geographic IP lookups are a dime a dozen on the internet.  But the vast majority of these lookup sites will throttle the number of requests.  This creates a slow and often frustrating limit on the usefulness in a production environment.

By leveraging a local database, it becomes far more efficient (and less costly) to implement GeoIP lookups in your AbleCommerce website.
