Easy reCAPTCHA v3 installation
reCAPTCHA v3 requires developing server side functionality. We take care of that for you so that you can focus on your shop.
No annoying bot verifications
reCAPTCHA v3 works invisibly in the background without requiring your customers to click checkboxes or select traffic light images.
Spam is finally marked as spam
Your blog comments will be properly marked as spam so you do not have to double check them.
If you are tired of managing all the spam on your blog comments this app is for you. Installation is simple and you get three things:
- reCAPTCHA v3 on comment forms
- reCAPTCHA v3 on contact and login forms
- proper spam flagging
Why reCAPTCHA v3
reCAPTCHA verifies that whoever is completing a form is not a spammer or a bot. The typical forms that are affected by spam are comment and newsletter signup forms. reCAPTCHA has historically required users to click a checkbox or a selection of images, much to their frustration. Version 3 is invisible to the user and happens in the background. The catch is that it is more complex to implement. This app easily does this for you.
While Shopify already protects most forms with the interactive image version of reCAPTCHA, the comments form is unfortunately exposed. reCAPTCHA can minimise comments you receive from spammers and simple bots.
Shopify already does a good job at flagging spam posts but unfortunately there is still a lot of imprecision. The reason is that advanced bot circumvent the comment form completely so even using reCAPTCHA spam still goes through. This application flags any comments that were not posted regularly through the comment form as spam.
How to manage blog comments
- Set your shop to require comment approval
- In the manage comments section save a filter to only show comments that need approval
- With spambuster installed you can just ignore the comments marked as spam, no need to waste time deleting them
I have spent years trying to find a good anti-spam solution. I have used so many other anti-spam solutions but none really did the job 100%, after installing reCAPTCHA spambuster I can't see why anyone would bother with confusing captcha pictures as this just stops the spammers in their tracks.
Shopify's default spam filter just does not do the job and spam still gets through, reCAPTCHA spambuster reliably solves this without any clumsiness. I have been using it on my contact form and blog and have found it to be very reliable.
I have tried other solutions to solve my spam issues but none have worked as well as I would have liked, reCAPTCHA spambuster fixed all my issues for my contact form and blog.
