  5. Hi,

    I am integrating a payment gateway, which is working well.

    I used _link function.  And I update gateway_id with a token we got.

    Can we implement recurring payment with this thirdparty gateway?

    Any document link for that?

    Huge amount of fake accounts

    Hi there We first became aware of instances of the spam signups being discussed here towards the latter end of last week and since then our team has been monitoring the issue and investigating instances of it reported to us via support tickets. We understand how receiving a large number of spam orders can be inconvenient and frustrating and so in an effort to try to combat and prevent these orders from being successful, our team has worked to implement Google's invisible reCAPTCHA to the shopping cart checkout workflow through the use of the hooks system. This is being provided as a short term immediate solution for users affected by the recent spam order submissions until such time as we can release a product update with this functionality natively included. What is Google Invisible reCAPTCHA? Invisible reCAPTCHA is designed to be as inobtrusive to the regular user as possible. In most cases, users will not be prompted to solve a captcha. Only when Google detects suspicious behaviour or traffic will a captcha challenge be presented. The result is that while it may not prevent all spam signups, as soon as Google detects suspicious activity or patterns, further automated orders should be blocked. To learn more about how Invisible reCAPTCHA works, please visit https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/invisible Installation Instructions To install the hook, follow the steps below. 1. Download the hook (attached at the bottom of this post) 2. Upload to the /includes/hooks/ directory of your WHMCS installation 3. The hook leverages the same Google reCAPTCHA configuration as defined in Setup > General Settings > Security. Therefore, please ensure the Captcha settings are configured there as follows: Captcha Form Protection: "Always On" or "Off when logged in" Captcha Type: reCAPTCHA (Google's reCAPTCHA system) reCAPTCHA Site Key & Secret Key: Provided Remember, Invisible reCAPTCHA may not block all spam submissions, but it should be effective in preventing repeated and high volume submission attempts. We're keen to hear how effective this change is at preventing the spam order submissions you’ve been experiencing recently so please let us know your experiences with the hook. Regards, Matt cart_recaptcha.php
