The reCaptcha addon allows you to further protect your Stripe payment buttons from spam bots.
When you enable this addon, the reCaptcha popup will appear when customers click a Stripe payment button. They will simply need to check a box that confirms they are human. This prevents robots from abusing the payment button on your site.

Customer’s View When reCaptcha is Enabled
Once the reCaptcha feature is enabled, anyone wishing to proceed to the checkout will need to select the reCaptcha checkbox. Checking the reCaptcha box is simple and hassle free for your customers although prevents bots from spamming your payment buttons.
Below is an example of what a customer would see when proceeding to checkout on a reCaptcha protected website. ReCaptcha will appear on all products created using Stripe Payments when this addon is enabled.
The Invisible reCaptcha does not require customers to click on a checkbox, instead it is invoked directly when the customer clicks on a payment button on your site. By default, only the most suspicious traffic will be prompted to solve a captcha. You can alter this behavior by editing your site security preference under advanced settings on your Google reCAPTCHA account.
