-- url of the page with the problem -- : www.bjdiscount.com
-- HikaShop version -- : 3.2.2
-- Joomla version -- : 3.8.4
-- PHP version -- : 5.6.32
-- Browser(s) name and version -- : Chrome

I'm getting dozens of new users from .ru, .pl, and yandex email addresses.

How do I stop user registration spam?

Hello,

It's not possible like that to know from where the accounts are created since Joomla also have a registration system.
So I would suggest you to add captcha also in HikaShop, but if it's coming from the Joomla registration (if it's bots, it's more likely), unfortunately we can't be helpful.

By the way, do not send me private message, use the "contact us" form instead.

Came across this post while looking for solution to a similar issue.
Not only did we implement recaptcha but also installed joomla addon "spambotcheck"

Works well for us as we have eliminated spam registrations.
