How to show that the store checkout is secure?

Last updated

Ecwid transfers all sensitive information via secure HTTPS protocol. So when your customers go to checkout they see the padlock icon on the checkout page and  know that these pages are SSL secure. 

There are several ways to show that the checkout is secure in even more prominent way.

Add SSL Seals to your site

These seals are created by Qualiteam design team

You can add them to your site to show your customers that your checkout is secure.

Change the SSL Encrypted popup

Please, follow these steps to change SSL Encrypted popup:

  1. Grab this image: http://app.ecwid.com/icons/SSLencrypted.png
  2. Edit this image in any image editor. Change the look of the button or translate it.
  3. Upload this image to your server or to any image hosting.
  4. Add the following CSS code to your Ecwid store:
    div.ecwid-AddressForm-SSLencryptedPopup { 
      background: transparent url(icons/SSLencrypted.png) no-repeat; 
    }  
    
  5. Replace the icons/SSLencrypted.png with the real absolute path to the modified image. For example:
    div.ecwid-AddressForm-SSLencryptedPopup { 
      background: transparent url(http://www.example.com/images/my_custom_ssl_image.png) no-repeat;
    }
    

That's all.
