Google has rolled out an improvement that is useful for sites that are secured (HTTPS) and will have a higher chance to be found in a Google Search. Also, Chrome has started adding warning notices in their program for sites that are not 100% secure. 

Below are the options and scenarios to have SSL or secure site. 

  • If you have your own domain and you want to use PinnacleCart shared SSL or you will purchase your own SSL, we can assist you with the installation.
  • If you use our shared SSL and you do not have your own domain name for your store, you may enable Force SSL redirection in your cart. 
  • If you have your own domain name and a dedicated SSL, your store will be secured once you enable Force SSL redirection in your cart. 

How to Enable Site-wide HTTPS 

  1. Go to Admin Area >> click Settings>>Store Settings>>Security Settings tab. 
  2. Scroll down and enable "Force SSL Redirection"
