CAPTCHA for Forms – New storeBlox 2 Option

CAPTCHAs can help reduce spam form submissions

Are you getting spam form submissions on your storeBlox 2 website? Quote requests from random users in Russia? You might need CAPTCHA for your web forms. A CAPTCHA tool helps prevent spam by forcing a visitor to re-type visual information.

eBlox can install CAPTCHA on your problematic web forms to help prevent automated submissions. Please note that even CAPTCHAs are not foolproof, so while they tend to reduce spam submissions, they rarely completely eliminate them. Before you add CAPTCHA to your site, you should also be aware that, because CAPTCHAs do take time to fill out, they can sometimes result in abandonment by legitimate users. We recommend them only when spam form submissions have become unmanageable.

CAPTCHAs are available now for all storeBlox 2 customers. Contact us for more information.

Rollovers show more detail at a glance

Want to give your customers quick access to product details while they’re searching and browsing? Listing Detail Rollovers show extensive product details just by moving the mouse over a product icon in search listings and product listings. Customers can view color options, full grid pricing and other details.

These rollovers automatically pull product details, so there’s no additional work for you to other than to define the details you want to see in the rollover. The rollovers will follow the existing visual style of your site, but will generally require a small amount of design and review before implementing. This feature can make the browsing experience much richer, especially for customers looking for particular colors or options. Try it out here!

Listing Rollovers are available for storeBlox 2 e-commerce platform customers right now! Just contact us for details.
