Support » Plugin: Eway Payment Gateway » Hook for failed payment

  • clayray


    EWay says that our site has been used for Bin attacks. We have a ReCaptcha on the checkout page but apparently this isn’t stopping the attacks. EWay claims that after the ReCaptcha is ticked, multiple (presumably bot-generated) attempts at different credit card numbers are possible, so now they require that each failed payment attempt should redirect to another page.

    Is this possible with your plugin? Is there a webhook function we could use?

    G’day clayray,

    The normal function of WooCommerce checkout is to retry on the same page using Ajax to reload the form.

    I could implement something that limits attempts per order, but that would be easily overcome by making another order. Your best bet here is to install an anti-fraud plugin for WooCommerce with a low threshold for failed attempts. Here’s a free one:

    By default, it will block the fraudster by IP address after 5 failed attempts. You can change the threshold through its settings.
