We work hard to continuously improve the BetterBNC contest platform now being used by hundreds of organizations across North America. Now, we’re pleased to share details on two important updates.
Captcha: Thanks to user feedback, we’ve made two significant changes to the contestant entry form.
- The entry form has been redesigned and simplified.
- We have replaced the “Google Captcha” with a more widely known system which saves time by asking fewer and easier questions.
Why do we need Captcha? The “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart” program helps ensure your contestant entries are legitimately made by a real person — computers cannot successfully read the distorted text, which greatly reduces the chances of a “hacker bot” gaining access to your contest.
PayPal Integration: For users of the Revenue Manager module — a software update from PayPal we deployed closes a rare occurrence related to timely reporting of payments to your PayPal Advanced account from certain bank cards. Note that some cards, such as American Express, may require additional setup within your PayPal Advanced account (contact PayPal for information).
Have a question? Just complete a trouble ticket and we’ll get back to you.
