The e-commerce.

Where to use https?


Recommended Posts

I am fairly green at osCommerce and I have - over the years - had some folks help me get my site up and running. There have been some recent changes made and I have noticed that my sales have tanked, and it seems to be related to difficulty in signing into my site. My login page is:





When I go to the login page from IE 8 I get an IE Security Warning popup message saying:


"Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?

This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage. YES / NO"


I can click through all these warnings but this is surely a bad customer experience.



Also, if I try to access the same page in Firefox I get redirected to the osCommerce page about Cookie Usage which says my browser cookies are disable or off - but I have checked and they are not. If the user then clicks the "Continue" button they get taken back to the homepage. So I don't think Firefox users can even sign in to the site.



Frankly I'm lost here. Is this related to the pages we have chosen to use https? Should the login page be https? Which pages should be https and which pages shouldn't be? Or have I got other issues here.


Any help or insights would really be appreciated.

There is no active SSL on your website, hence the errors and the lack of customer confidence when making purchases.
