Do you need SSL?
If you use iCharge xServ
as your integration method you'll need SSL because xServ is a
server-side API and you need to provide your own user interface for credit card entry.
If you use iCharge jServ
or iCharge JX
as your integration method, SSL is highly recommended.
While technically not required for security, it's important for user perception.
iCharge jServ and JX communicate directly to the iCharge server over an SSL connection even if your page is not secure.
However, users will be reluctant to enter their credit cards on a page seen to be non-secure.
Therefore you'll need SSL on your own page just to allay this concern.
This page itself is an example.
If you use iCharge Web Classic
, you don't need SSL because the user enters credit card details in a
separate page hosted by the iCharge server, which is already SSL-enabled.
Of course you're also welcome to take advantage of our great value pricing to purchase SSL for any other purpose.
