I would like to validate emails before it’s added to the database for free registration.
is eStore compatible with any email validation plug-ins?
or is there a way to send get request to an API, before registering an email?
I have no need for temporary emails/disposable emails and I get a lot of them for free productsJanuary 5, 2020 at 12:25 am #80216
Are you referring to the squeeze form option?January 5, 2020 at 4:54 pm #80217
No, it’s the choose your price, when you choose 0 ,and start moving through manual checkoutJanuary 5, 2020 at 11:49 pm #80218
The download link will get sent to that email that they enter in the form. How will they get the download link if it isn’t a valid email address?
Maybe you have some bot submissions on your site. Those can be countered using the captcha option. go to the following interface:
WP eStore -> Settings -> Addon Settings
Scroll down to the “Google reCAPTCHA Settings” section and configure it. That will add a captcha on the manual checkout form. That will prevent any bot submissions.January 7, 2020 at 3:05 pm #80219
Yes, but those are not bots, those are human that use disposable emails, temporary emails
like this service: temp-mail.org/
you jump and get a temporary email, download whatever you want, and that’s it
The thing is there are lists of those, like this
Can I check against it before it gets saved, so I won’t get all these temporary/disposable emails spamming my email list?January 8, 2020 at 9:56 pm #80220wzpModerator
Please see my explanation, about the problems of getting into a war of attrition with determined users:
Your only recourse, would be to charge a nominal membership fee for access to “free” download areas that require the paid users to login to.January 9, 2020 at 12:21 am #80221
Generally, if someone is really determined to do that then you can’t do anything for “Free Items”. There are a range of other things that they can do to get around whatever else you will do. The proper way would be to charge a fee for the products/items.
