The e-commerce.

do i need SSL if only using paypal?


Recommended Posts

i'm pretty familiar with oscommerce and have built a completely custom site using it. i have a SSL certificate set up on that site because they have their own merchant account and gateway set up.


the question i have is do i need to set up a SSL with certificate if only paypal would be used? i have another client who wants to set up ecommerce but for now is just going to use paypal for transactions. considering there isn't any sensitive info such as credit cards being entered on the site is a SSL needed?

Depends if you consider names, addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers sensitive. I do... An SSL cert is cheap--why not give customers a little bit of added confidence about their personal info?
