Why should I use CAPTCHA?

A CAPTCHA is a program used to determine if a user is a human or another computer. 

CAPTCHA can be implemented in your payments process to help reduce the risk of fraudulent transactions by making consumers pass a basic check before they can access your payment form. 

The addition of another step in the payment process makes it more difficult for fraudsters to access your payment form quickly. By adding CAPTCHA, you can help prevent spam or other abuse occurring on your payment form or shopping cart.

Must know: 

  • A CAPTCHA should be added before a consumer can access any part of the payment form.

Good to know: 

  • There are many free CAPTCHA services available, such as Google's reCAPTCHA, that simplify the process of adding a CAPTCHA to your website
  • Most CAPTCHA services require some sort of development to implement.
