An SSL security certificate enables a secure link between the customer’s Web browser and your WPCommerce online store.
While not strictly necessary to run an online store, A basic SSL security certificate should be purchased with every WPCommerce plan that does not include one as part of the subscription. This will prevent the Web traffic between a buyer and the online store from being “eavesdropped”.
SSL certificates are renewed annually ($60/year).
This type of SSL certificate secures one domain. If your organisation has additional requirements, like wildcard certificates, please contact WPCommerce support.
