    HoneyPot Captcha

    At the end.............. You go figure it all have to do with it. That you are doing THAT ( so what you do). There is much room open for many others to tackle that. To goal is to prevent. To monitor ( what means storing form $_POSTS................ mwaaaaaaaaaaa , i think that is a most unwanted subject of the cause). At the end............ if it is HoneyPot, a GUARDIAN SYSTEM, or google reCaptchaV2 or google reCaptchaV3 ( you tried v3?). osCommerce users simply do not like to be spammed. If put that first and can agree on that. That would might be a step forward for the whole community.

    No one here see an order go from 100............ suddenly it is same order........... but contain a new id: like orID 103............ No one see that as a flaw? Just asking here!

    I say here i might loose the point......................... But i think this is exactly where all this conversation bounces to. I might be wrong here................. I might be right. But i think it situates the issue. Orders are go from 1 ( initial order)...............while processing.............. to order 3 in our DB That is a strange behavior and prob is related to the initial question asked. ( and i think more prob's).

    I agree 100% if this topic try to raise: orders table, and while the order is processed, the shop get like 3 times a "update".And the update simply skip from order id 1 to order id 3. When after look in the DB.............. you will not find an order ID 1 or 2. Just 3. I think this is not right. but i might loose here the point!

    Is most checkouts not count on the payment gateway sequence? IPN is where oscommerce most count on? Not sure if that should be handled via application_top.php It definitely would result in a "Headers already sent". Curious about this handling.

    It is NOT right to see when MONITOR a checkout................... In the ADMIN you SEE someone process the checkout. And at a later point you see someone either PASS the checkout or FAIL the checkout. It is TO obvious this PROCESS should be outof the monitoring process of oscommerce. It holds an order ID to oscommerce DB. Yeah.............. it tell you if succeed or not................ 100% agree. But i think the goal is here to only give a %100 purchase. Perhaps i am wrong in the understanding of the question, correct me if i am wrong.

    100% i agree. This is a policy osCommerce prefer to proceed. This not just justificate to Paypal............ many checkout systems count on it. Stripe is also one of it. I must be honest................. i see it ( and kind of works for the system).............. yet i also see it it is not right way. It kind of work more like a plaster, instead cover the checkout process.. I agree.............. it isn't right. It seems in most cases..................... just not in oscommerce it is covered decently. Let say it................ it is doubt full. No real blame........ just a notice.

    Generated link Concept

    You figured it.......... good someone sees it.
  10. Sorry................ i cannot . Let me trow up an idea and let YOU and the rest either give it a go... or reject it by good argumentation. We use in oscommerce for all links: - tep_href_link What if use for the above listed pages: - tep_gen_href_link ( where _gen means: Generated link) So if DIRECTLY goto contact_us.php and there is no KEY provided that matches. You already know it is a bot. Give it a thought. I not say it go cover all problems. Now i really stop.

    Let me go back to what i was actual saying... get rid of a static page like: - create_account.php - contact_us.php - tell_a_friend.php - product_reviews_write.php These are the pages targeted by bots. These are the least interesting pages to show up in search engines. And when eliminate these, it "perhaps" prevent most of the BOTS. For sure , any protection could benefit your store. But i think it is better to look at the root of the problem. By given advice, i step out of this conversation.

    I not want to be a game breaker here. But for the address part, google seemed to took care of it as well. Google: Autocomplete Address Form I just want to point out that most of the problems are covered in so much ways and by so much people and company who offer solutions. I perhaps stirred the pot a little here. But i think in the end it the discussion was worth it. I definitely noticed that what i mentioned gave some second thoughts. Nothing of what i Sayed was to hurt anyone in one way or the other, or try to let them look bad. I think with what i told, opened doors to other views. There is a real difference in running a shop or a forum or a blog. I understand , the quicker the process, no burdens in registration etc, could make the purchase of an item quicker. But it is good to talk about it, and even more........... to listen what the other say or try to understand I excuse to anyone who felt or thought i was or that i am a disturbing factor.

    No need to Noodle. What is say is right. Your DB MIGHT be flood. Who cares if it is a legit user or not. He never buy anything. Remove them from DB, no need of them. Even the "legit ones"............. they not buy. Useless. Drop them. A serious problem is the "contact_us.php" for a SHOP OWNER. That is kind of pages should be somehow be protected.

    Is it not here where it all starts from? As soon when fill the form, osCommerce instantly log you IN. Right? you can put anything you want in the registation and it it is accepted. WORSE........... you are instantly logged.......... right? Do not blame me here as the MESSENGER.

    Stupid argumentation You not VERIFY anything. The address of the user is not verified. for THAT NO legitimacy is conserved during the register process. ( this could be blamed to osCommerce itself or to module makers who chosen to cover this kind of failure) Not a legit resource to start with.
