UXi® Commerce already transfers all sensitive information via secure HTTPS protocol. It's one of the UXi® Commerce's advantages — you don't need to get an SSL certificate to get secure checkout. You already have it.
In order to show that the checkout is secure, UXi® Commerce shows an image of a padlock on its checkout page.
You can also add some additional seals or notes to your customers to show them that your checkout is secure.
If you want the browser to show a padlock, you need to perform the following steps:
- purchase an SSL certificate
- install it (your hosting can do it, however you need to have a dedicated IP address)
- link to your store page using HTTPS protocol (i.e. you need to update some your site's or blog's settings)
- slightly update the UXi® Commerce integration code (replace "http://app.ecwid.com" with "https://app.ecwid.com")
Note: if you see this line in your integration code:
you don't need to update the integration code. This line woks correctly both on HTTP and HTTPS without any changes.
