SSL certificate

Post by Andy K » Sun Sep 18, 2016 1:55 am

If I set Paypal as the only payment option on an ecommerce site is it still advisable to install an SSL certificate?
Not accepting credit cards as payments.

Hi Andy - You can if you wish Andy, but PayPal (at least the last time I used it for a Client with the std PayPal offering) provides a a HTTPS gateway anyway.

Thanks Colin.

I did think that was the case but just wanted to double check with the forum people to be sure.
It would be unforgivable to put up an online store for a client if it wasn't secured.

Cheers
Andy

You're most welcome Andy 8) - yes I agree - any payment gateway should be HTTPS
