Why was my order being reviewed for quality then rejected?

Solution ID:    SO11964    Updated:    03/26/2012


- Failed security review
- Order security check
- Order flagged for review
- Order was rejected after failed security review
- Your order states it is being reviewed for quality


RapidSSL’s authentication engine is programmed to automatically flag certain types of orders for a quality review before issuance. This system of checks ensures no fraudulent orders are issued.

For example orders from certain countries may get reviewed, or orders with certain defined terms or similarities with well known company names may trigger the review.

If the name  “ACME” is a defined term in the RapidSSL authentication engine, then a certificate for “macmermaidtest.com” will be flagged for quality review prior to issuance. 


If your order fails to pass the security review, it will be rejected. To check the status of the certificate order please do not hesitate to contact Order Processing using the available contact methods below:
