If you accept credit cards for transactions at your Quick Shopping Cart® storefront, either through a payment gateway or using a Point Of Sale (POS) credit card machine, you must apply an SSL certificate to your domain. This certificate ensures the security of your website when handling your customers' personal and credit card information.
You can add an SSL Certificate to your Website at any time, even if your domain name is hosted elsewhere.
The SSL is used during the checkout process when sensitive data is being transmitted. It is not used while browsing the storefront as sensitive data is not being transmitted.
If you do not already have Secure Certificate Credits, you can purchase a credit. Once you have a Secure Certificate Credit, on the Secure Certificates page, follow the instructions to complete your online application.
After you add an SSL certificate to your domain, add the Website seal image to your online store to show visitors that your website is secure. Your Quick Shopping Cart must be published, and your SSL certificate must be issued and installed on your domain, before you can add the Website seal to your Quick Shopping Cart Website.
The SSL Website seal option displays only when the SSL certificate is applied to your Website.
You must publish your Website for your storefront to display the SSL Website seal.
