WooCommerce Phone Verification on Checkout using RingCaptcha

Description

This plugin adds phone verification widget on checkout page using the RingCaptcha SMS API. WooCoommerce does not have phone verification by default so people can just input random phone numbers and business owners can’t verify if an order is legitimate or not. This is good for business owners doing cash on delivery, since a verified phone number is always tied to each order. This plugin also helps reduce fraudalent orders / fake credit cards since a user must verify the phone number first before he can proceed with checkout.

This plugin also has the ability to send SMS notifications whenever someone places an order. This is useful for the status of your shipping, or simply just giving thank you messages. Sending SMS notifications is tied to the WooCommerce order status, and is automated by the plugin. SMS notifications can also send order notifications to the business owner as well whenenever a new order has been received.

SMS notification is not working. Why?

Since the plugin’s SMS notification uses RingCaptcha’s Direct SMS feature, this feature is turned off by default on RingCaptcha’s side to avoid spam and abuse. Also, sending Direct SMS is a premium feature of RingCaptcha but we’re willing to unlock this for WordPress users. Just simply reach out via e-mail (accounts@ringcaptcha.com) or via Intercom on our site (https://ringcaptcha.com) and we’ll do it for you.

Can I remove the RingCaptcha logo?

Sure! Just reach out via e-mail (accounts@ringcaptcha.com) or via Intercom on our site (https://ringcaptcha.com) and we’d be more than happy to do it for you.

Can I only verify users who hasn’t verified before?

The plugin currently verifies phone number per each order regardless if the phone number has already verified before or not. This is good in a sense that each order and phone verification is unique on its own, to avoid possible fraud.

Can I only use verify when mode of payment is CoD?

The plugin currently verifies phone number regardless of the mode of payment. This reduces bot attacks / fraudulent orders as well.
