We recommend following places captcha to enable.

  1. Checkout captcha, Please enable for both login/guest captcha
  2. Enable captcha for “Payment Method”, There is separate section
  3. This is the main door for attracts (Pay For Order). Many shop owners don’t know that failed orders also can be re-try. (Enable Pay For Order captcha inside checkout captcha)
  4. Also if you don’t use PayPal Standard checkout that redirects on PayPal and back again to the site, Then please set Re-captcha Validity to 0. ( I mean to say if you don’t have any payment method that do not take time then set Validity to 0 is best)
  5. Also, enable – Refresh captcha on guest checkout error
  6. Also, enable -Refresh captcha on login checkout error
