Timing of fcsid

How long does this session last?
We are dealing with bots hitting our checkout, and was curious if a shorter session would help prevent or deter this?

    A cart session lasts for 12 hours.

    I neglected to mention this in your other thread - but if you're experiencing fraudulent transactions, your best bet will be to enable anti-fraud functionality at the gateway level. They'll be much more likely to catch these types of things, and it would also mean you're not penalising your legitimate customers by adding additional barriers to ordering.
  • Adam,
    Thanks for the response.
    I agree, on providing a great customer experience, and hopefully we aren't creating a less than pleasant one by adding reCaptcha. I think if we provide a little explanation, it may satisfy some or help understand our intentions.
