If you’re experiencing spam sign-ups through your AccessAlly opt-in forms or AccessAlly order forms, we recommend turning on the CAPTCHA to help prevent this.
Step 1: Google reCAPTCHA
First, go to this page on Google to create your captcha system for your domain (or subdomain as the case may be):
Fill in the details as follows:
- Name the reCaptcha for your membership site
- Select “Version 2” and “Invisible” reCaptcha badge
- Your domains: do NOT include the “https://” just the domain itself or subdomain
Then agree to the Google terms of service and decide if you’d like to be notified of suspicious activities.
Hit the submit button.
Now you’ll have your ReCaptcha keys, and you can insert them into the AccessAlly settings.
Step 2: AccessAlly Opt-In Forms & Order Forms
In your WordPress site, navigate to Settings -> General Setup -> Opt-in Captcha
Adding your keys here will prevent SPAM signups on AccessAlly opt-in forms and in Step 1 of your AccessAlly order forms.
Step 3: AccessAlly Order Forms
When using AccessAlly Order Forms there’s an additional spot to add your keys. You’ll find this under AccessAlly -> Payment Settings -> Credit Card -> Purchase verification with reCAPTCHA
In this spot you’ll add the same keys as you did in Step 2.
Step 4: Review Automation Logs
After you’ve completed setting up captcha on your site you’ll be able to see your successful opt-ins with captcha. This shows you that your setup is correct and working as new users complete your order forms and opt-in forms.
Go to AccessAlly → Settings → Developer Tools → Detailed Log tab → Show Automation Logs dropdown → Status dropdown → Success
All opt-ins and order forms with captcha will show as a type “4” on your log. All opt-ins and order forms without captcha will show as a type “1” on your log.
