Several times, I have seen many nopCommerce users asking this question on the forums i.e. How to configure free shipping for products in bulk? 

The manual process can be a quite tedious to configure free shipping for all products by going to each product page in admin section one by one. nopCommerce does offer a functionality by which you can update a list of products (at once) for free shipping.

Another way to achieve this is by using sql script. Today, we will discuss both of these options.

How to enable reCAPTCHA in nopCommerce to protect your website from spam

Categories: nopCommerce

nopCommerce comes integrated with reCAPTCHA that enables the store admin to enable CAPTCHA for list of specific pages in order to prevent spam on the website.

Before we go further into this tutorial, let talk about reCAPTCHA.

What is reCAPTCHA?
reCAPTCHA is a free service to protect your website from spam and abuse. reCAPTCHA uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting your valid users pass through with ease.

reCAPTCHA offers more than just spam protection. Every time our CAPTCHAs are solved, that human effort helps digitize text, annotate images, and build machine learning datasets. This in turn helps preserve books, improve maps, and solve hard AI problems.

How to add custom customer attributes / fields in nopCommerce

Categories: nopCommerce

There are times when some nopCommerce store admins finds themselves in a situation when the default registration form fields are not enough for their needs (if they would like to manage more information of the customers). In reality, it can be a very difficult task for a non-technical store admin to dive into the code and make the required modifications (in code and the database) for adding custom fields. A lot of users were facing this issue in the previous/old versions of nopCommerce as there was no way to accomplish  this unless the user makes the modifications in the code / database.

In order to overcome this issue, a feature (option) was added to the nopCommerce project in the administration section that allows store admins to add custom fields in a user-friendly way.

Today we will go over this long awaited feature that was added to nopCommerce !
