PressPay grew out of a project to create a web store for a client. He wanted a site to sell T-Shirts but was overwhelmed by the complexity of most e-commerce plugins. He already had a blog post about the T-shirts and his readers were commenting that they wanted to buy them. He just needed a button on the blog post to complete the transaction. PressPay is that button.
Write a shortcode into any post or page and PressPay embeds a button in that page. When your readers click the button they will be prompted to enter their credit card information and are walked through the rest of the sale.
PressPay uses Stripe as a backend to process transactions so you need an account with them. You should also be sure to enable ssl on any site that you use to collect sensitive information – like credit card numbers.
Do you need SSL on your site to make this secure or does the pop up have SSL via Stripe?
Awesome plugin btw!
The short answer is: Yes you need SSL.
Now, the longer answer. PressPay doesn’t do anything to make sure that you have SSL enabled. So, you can test it on a site without SSL and you won’t have any problems. It also communicates with stripe by passing encrypted tokens so there really isn’t a security problem by running it over http vs https. But, Stripe’s terms of service require you to have SSL on your site so it is required. And, people won’t enter their credit card info into a website without SSL enabled so you won’t make any money with out SSL.
Glad to hear that you like the plugin. Be sure to reach out if you need any help getting your store up and earning.
