  • I would also like to know if anyone knows the answer to this. Are changes needed or are we covered by running the latest install of WP/Cart66 Light?

    Thanks in advance!

    I would like to know the answer to this as well…

    This isn’t really related to WP E-Commerce.

    If you have an SSL certificate (ie, visitors browse your site via https://yourdomain.com), you need to make sure your SSL certificate is strong enough. Your host can advise on this. You can also click the ‘lock’ icon next to the address bar in your browser and view the connection details to see information about your certificate.

    If you don’t have SSL (the https://) on your site, this doesn’t affect you. See this discussion here where this person asked PayPal and they confirmed they will continue to allow insecure connections:
    http://civicrm.stackexchange.com/questions/6369/do-sites-without-ssl-now-need-one-for-paypal-ipn

    Note: an insecure connection definitely should not be used if any sensitive details are collected on your website. It should really be used at all times for any details, but if you send the visitor off to PayPal where they make the payment itself, there is less risk.

    Note2: if you do not use SSL (or use an insecure one), it would be wise not trust what you see in WP-Admin and check your paypal account to ensure you actually received the payment before shipping.

    Hi all… Re WP e-Commerce. There is nothing that needs to be done with the store plugin. We do not bundle certificates with our gateways. The notice is a general notice sent to all Paypal users but is directed at those using point of sale and integrated systems. The methods the store uses are not affected..

    If there were anything that needed to be done it would be server related and not plugin related.

    Hope this helps
