    Default Quick question before upgrading to 1.5

    Just a quick question. I use Paypal express for my payments gateway. I saw in the update list for 1.5 that SSL is required for payment gateways. I do not currently have SSL (running 1.3.9h). Will Paypay Express still work, or will I need to get SSL for my site?

    Thanks,
    Will

    Far as I know, you can use Paypal Express without SSL, but you should have a security certificate anyway. They're cheap (at least here in the US) and many visitors won't create an account on your site without seeing the 'padlock'.

    K, thank you. I know they're cheap. It's just my domain is an addon, and doesnt play nicely with SSL since it doesnt have a dedicated IP

    PayPal Express isn't actually a payment gateway since the transaction is processed on their site rather than through your site.

    Does your host have a shared cert you can use? That would work with an add-on domain without a dedicated IP address.

    The best way to learn is to try stuff. But, back it up first.

    and your host can probably still offer SSL options for you.. Sites on shared hosting solutions can get an SSL certificate.. Contact your host to inquire..
