I'm new to this client / web design thing, so please bear with me. (I usually just do the programming, this time I'm fully in charge)
Anyway, I've a client that sells customized puzzles. I've made a simple website that shows off his puzzles / mazes, and a basic interface for the user to choose the customizations they can perform to their puzzles or mazes.
Once they "checkout", all I need to get is their contact and shipping information. My client doesn't want to do any credit card "stuff". I want to make sure that his checkout form is not spammed to death with false puzzle / maze requests.
How should I go about verifiying that a user, indeed, is a user? I.e., not a spam-bot?
Any suggestions for the newbie here ;-)
