[resolved] PayPal Button Encryption (10 posts)

    Is there anyway to make the PayPal buttons encrypted?

    Client is insisting on this (and I agree - for security) ....so, hopefully, I just missed something in the settings?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Encrypted in what way? Do you mean the URL that is used to redirect to PayPal?

    Yes, I believe so. Once submitting from the website, I'm taken to PayPal and receive the following alert:

    "The seller accepts encrypted website payments only. You cannot pay the seller through un-encrypted buttons. Please contact your seller for more details."

    This actually has nothing to do with the configuration of the plugin, but there are two ways to fix it:

    1. Install an SSL certificate for your checkout page. Doing this will cause the buttons to be encrypted and all data will be served via https://

    2. Disable the encrypted payments requirements. This is perfectly fine and does not cause security problems for you. To do this, follow the directions here: https://support.bigcommerce.com/questions/963/What+is+the+%22seller+accepts+encrypted+web+site+payments+only%22+error+message+with+PayPal%3F

    Thanks! I suspected these were my only options. Will look into SSL :)

    how does one install an SSL certificate to the check out page? Specific code or a plugin?

  8. I'd recommend you use the WordPress HTTPS plugin.

    Thank you for the plugin. I have acquired an ssl through godaddy and am added in the plugin. When I click on the check out link I still get the above paypal message. Is there something special I need to do with the plugin?

  10. What's the exact error message you get?
