Do I need my own secure certificate??

For years I’ve had my own secure certificate for my website. However, I just dropped my merchant account and went PayPal only. Is there still any reason for me to have my own? I would sure like to save the money.

Only if your customers won’t mind. Most of them will though.

I’m not sure the customers would even know. Since all transactions go through PayPal, it seems there would be no reason for my website to have a secure certificate. That’s all I’m saying.

Trust me…some are even particular about the basic information, not just cc info.

I agree with the Toolman,

No doubt, maybe 5 years you could have gotten by without an SSL cert displayed on your site & just using Paypal standard as your processor, but today it will cost you more in lost sales by not having one than the annual cost of the cert. Be thankful the cost of certs are only a fraction of what they were a few years back… :wink:

Also a SSL will be used on your customers pages as ‘My account’ and so on, where are stored important information of your customers.
