I had this plugin setup on my group’s website to use for donations. I then noticed hundreds of fraud donations in amounts from 50 cents to $10. Fraudsters were using my donation block to test stolen credit cards. Stripe did not catch these obvious fraud attempts and as basic users we didn’t have the tools to stop the fraud before it happens. We were forced to buy Stripe’s Radar for Teams premium product just to create rules not to allow cards when the ip of the user didn’t match the country of the card for one simple example. Our group is now out $55 in Radar processing fees for the hundreds of blocked attempts.
Stripe investigated and said it was the GiveWP integration and that we should use a Recaptcha on the form. There is no free way of doing that and the one plugin that said it worked with Givewp – Zero Spam doesn’t work with the “Donation Form Block for Stripe”
