HTTPS required to use PayPal

On 02/07/2018

In News

If you use the PayPal feature to sell online through your website, some developments are to be expected due to a major change at PayPal.
In fact, PayPal will require its users to have an SSL certificate to continue using its online payment services. And this change is effective since 30th June 2018.

PayPal has been an online payment service since 1998

PayPal, an online payment service since 1998, is widely used around the world to carry out banking transactions on the Internet. At emyspot, we provide you a PayPal widget, which is a feature to enable you to sell products directly from a page. But you can also use it as a payment method for your online store, to offer your buyers several payment systems.
In both cases, the evolution of PayPal for secure connections does concern you. The SSL required by PayPal has become mandatory the 30th June 2018.

Since 30th June 2018, PayPal requires its users to set up an SSL certificate to secure payments made with their system. This latest development is easily covered by updating your service agreements. They can certify the payments as secure, even on external connections (when using the feature on your emyspot website, for example). This is to comply with PCI (Payment Card Industry) which is a data security standard.
