Title: Virtuemart without SSL?
Post by: scubasteve21 on August 13, 2012, 23:07:18 pm
I was wondering if it would be possible to use Virtuemart without having SSL? I would only use Paypal as my payment method but my host would require additional costs from my current package in order to supply SSL and it was a cost I wasn't too keen on incurring.

Hope someone can answer.

Thanks

Hello,

Yes you can use it without SSL, but you shouldn't let the customers to supply CC numbers on checkout, you can use redirect method (like paypal can be used) with a bank or paypal or whatever.
