Creating a Google reCAPTCHA Account
Step 1: Open Google reCAPTCHA admin setup page, this will allow you to link your WSM account.
*Make sure it is only the “Domain” name (ex. www.webshopmanager.com).
Do not put in the site “URL” (ex. https://www.webshopmanager.com)
**If you just created a google account, this will automatically populate in this field
Step 2: You need to fill in the fields appropriately, below is what it should look like:
Step 3: After reviewing the information, you put in, go ahead and click on the blue “Submit” button located right below the “Send alerts to owners” button.
You will then be redirected to a page that will display your reCAPTCHA site key & reCAPTCHA secret. Keep this information ready because you will need it shortly
Adding reCAPTCHA to WSM
Before getting started, you will need to have the following websites readily available:
- Google reCAPTCHA – https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create#list (make sure you have a google account already created if you do not please create one by clicking here)
- WSM – https://webshopmanager.com/admin?view=login.index&site=25
Once you have your Google account open as well as your Web Shop Manager account please follow the steps below:
Step 1: Once you have your WSM account open, we need to add both “Site Key” and the “Secret Key” to your WSM account to get it working
Step 2: Once you are logged in, you are going to use your mouse to hover over the “System” tab which is located at the top of your screen
Step 3: Hovering over the “System” tab will give you more options to choose from, the option you want to click on is “Configurations"
Step 4: The screen that appears is the “Configuration” screen. This is where you will put in both keys you created. Now, click on the “General” tab
Step 5: Locate the “Customer Form Spam Settings”, it is the 2nd section on the “General tab”
- As you can see in the screenshot above, you will notice the “Customer Form Spam Settings” and, in this section is both the reCAPTCHA Site Key & reCAPTCHA Secret
Step 6: Now, you will input both the site key and secret key into the appropriate place on your WSM account. It may be easier to have both the Google reCAPTCHA site and your WSM account side by side when you are performing this step
Step 7: After you have copy & pasted both keys into the appropriate fields, click on the “Save Changes” button located at the bottom of the screen.
