*Whilst this has proved 100% effective thus far, it is possible that spammers in future will discover a way around it and we cannot guarantee we will be able to update the extension to fix this. You are therefore purchasing on the basis that this works now but may stop working at some point in future. While we will try to update it if this happens, we cannot guarantee it will be possible.

Antropy PayPal Standard Protection

There is a way in OpenCart 1.5.x for customers to adjust the total of an order before it is sent to PayPal, and to therefore place a successful order after only paying a few pence.

If the store owner doesn't notice this, they may well ship the product before realizing that full payment wasn't received.

If the products are digital downloads, the customer may be successful in their attempt to get the products for just $0.01 or £0.01.

This vQmod will check that the amount paid is the same as the order total, and if not, it will set the order status to "Failed".

This extension works with PayPal Standard only.
You must enable IPN in PayPal (easy to do).
No core files modified.

What customers say about Advanced Captcha 3.x, 2.x and 1.5.x

Switched from Google Recaptcha v3 to this, using OpenCart and Journal 3 Theme (no customization needed). Easy to install, update system settings, and so far a week in and still no spam! (We had started getting several per hour). Antropy is very helpful and responsive. Overall, very pleased.
