Usage

Minimum Required

These are the only required fields to acquire a response from MaxMind.

require 'maxmind'
Maxmind.license_key = 'LICENSE_KEY'
request = Maxmind::Request.new(
  :client_ip => '24.24.24.24'
)

  response = request.process!

Recommended

For increased accuracy, these are the recommended fields to submit to MaxMind. The additional fields here are optional and can be all or none.

require 'maxmind'
Maxmind.license_key = 'LICENSE_KEY'
request = Maxmind::Request.new(
      :client_ip => '24.24.24.24',
      :city => 'New York',
      :region   => 'NY',

  :email => 'test@test.com',
  :username => 'test_carder_username',

Chargeback Service

You can help improve the Minfraud service by reporting instances of fraud. Only the IP address of a suspected fraudulent order is required, but you can pass additional information. Note that your Maxmind User ID is required in addition to your license key.
