The use of SSL is a critical option in any ecommerce store in that it secures the transactions between your store and the customer. In some cases, a payment gateway (used to process customer credit card payment) will not operate without the SSL certificate in place. The use of SSL (Secure Socket Layer) creates a connection between you and your customer that is encrypted. This will not necessarily encrypt data saved on your server already, but it provides a secure connection that customers will often recognize and trust. The following article explains how to enable SSL within OpenCart 1.5.
In order to use SSL in OpenCart you will need to have an SSL Certificate installed for your URL, edit your CONFIG.PHP file to have the HTTPS path, and enable SSL within the Server settings. All of these options will need to be active and correct in order for SSL to work. Note that SSL Certificates are not free - please see your host for more information concerning their procedures for installation. Remember that some payment processors REQUIRE SSL before they can process your credit card payments. Keeping your customer's transactions secure will win your customers' confidence and enable you to securely maintain sales transactions for you store.
