I'm new to Drupal and CiviCRM. I work mostly with Blackbaud/NetCommunity. I'm operating a website that using CiviContribute for donations. Our Payment Processor is Paypal Payments Pro.

I'm trying to add in a CAPTCHA or verification method to our donation part. I can't find how to add a CAPTCHA or any verification to the donation form. I don't see any customizable options on the payment page.

Is it possible to add a CAPTCHA on a CiviContribute donation form?

  • lol, don't be silly, I've never seen a CAPTCHA in a payment form. The paypal API has a verification method, not sure if the CiviCRM module uses it, but one would think they would. – No Sssweat Jun 2 '16 at 23:17
  • This isn't an absurd request. There a few bot tools that might hammer a payment form (e.g. bulk verifying stolen CC #'s, looking for common security holes, etc.) – Shawn Conn Jun 3 '16 at 7:48
  • certainly true that payment pages do get hammered by people/machines testing stolen card details. – petednz - fuzion Jun 8 '16 at 2:35

You should probably be asking this on the CiviCRM stack.

You can set a catpcha on a Profile. So check which Profiles you have set for the Contribution page. Then edit the Advanced settings for that Profile where you can set captcha.
