    I think you're doing something wrong. I've been using GSA for a year now and never had similar problems.

    when i press the test button it mentions they charge $6 per 1,000 for de-captcher.com
    but when i originally entered my information it didnt mention anything...

    if i had known i would have set it to manually enter captcha then wrote a quick program to send the captcha myself manually...

    just venting thats all...

    Thats scandalous if true. I always used DBC with it when I used to use GSA. Can anyone else confirm this?

    What are you saying?
    GSA doesnt charge anything. Its whoever you are using as your captcha provider.
    I use deathbycaptcha and its around $1-$1.4 I think.

    ^ This.
    Also GSA Captcha breaker handles all your non re-captcha woes if you don't already use that in tandem with the SER in case you didn't know OP.

    de-captcher.com lets providers raise the price and make money on the captchas...
    i have never minded that, ive always just worked around it.
    i just dont like not being notified when entering my info..


    im actually not the first to have noticed this...

    I don't know why people try to make a big deal out of something that's been said since the beginning. There has always been a message that says it charges $6 per 1,000 captchas with Decaptcher. GSA was locked into a contract with decaptcher a long time ago and has to do this.

    There is nothing scandalous about it considering there is a warning message and 13-15 other captcha providers you can choose from in the software that don't cost any extra. Decaptcher is the only one. I've always recommended going with a different captcha service since the beginning.

    For Captcha Breaker, there is no extra charge with Decaptcher. It's only for certain link building tools.

    I've never heard of anyone not clicking the test button when you put in your API key. That's how you know its working and get your balance. :dontknow:

    I think OP should understand that GSA Captcha Breaker is a different service than Decaptcher.com.
    DeCaptcher is an optional service for GSA, where captchas unsolved by GSA CB can be solved by de DeCaptcher. But if you don't use DeCaptcher, GSA will not charge you anything.

    So, the topic of this thread should be : $6 for 1000 captchas by DeCaptcher, not by GSA. As far as I know, GSA DeCaptcher is around $130 for unlimited captchas.

    I don't know if this is an attempt to slander, or just OP's inability to distinguish one service from other service.

    i just wasnt aware that GSA was Search Engine Ranker has a different rate...
