E-commerce businesses depend on electronic transactions to receive payment from customers for products and services. The massive volume of electronic transactions has lead to a rise in fraudulent activities. As per the data released by Global Fraud Attack Index TM, the number of attacks by fraudsters increased by 163 percent in 2015, rapidly growing two and a half times in a three-quartered period. Credit card fraud impacts all those involved in it: the consumer whose credit card information is stolen, the merchant from whom the product is purchased, the bank that enables the transaction and the issuer who is obliged to protect its cardholders. In this dynamic e-commerce landscape, as merchants constantly sell their products through multiple channels and provide different payment methods to cater to local customer needs, keeping abreast of fraud risks is a challenging task. Riskified provides a flexible fraud prevention solution for enterprises.

Here is a document which describes how the contents in a View can be displayed in a table format as well as it can be dragged and dropped from one row to an another row without using any additional jQuery functions. We have done this in Drupal 7 and this can be achieved using a module named 'DragabbleViews'. You can download it from this link: http://drupal.org/project/draggableviews. This module requires the 'Views' module to be installed already in your system.
