    Is Payment Form secure when using HTTP only URL of Form?

    Asked by adea on November 11, 2015 at 06:02 PM

    I was so happy and was getting ready to make about 6 forms live at 6 pm EST today.    All of a sudden it dawned on me that by embedding the payment option inside my website people will feel that the page isn't secured.  Since there is no way I can get SSL at this late date and have it installed, what are my other options? I have included one of my 6 pages below.

    When using the Payment tools/integration, the payment process will all be done on the payment gateway. For example, on your form on the website, the payment process will be handled by Paypal.

    So it actually makes the payment process even more secure since the Payment Gateway will be involved.

    In some cases it is alright to use the non-secure URL of your payment form as well.

    The only issue you might have later on, since you were only on FREE plan, is that payment submission will be limited to 10x only.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance on this.
