SSL/HTTPS for Shopp pages or checkout process only

Shopp currently doesn’t redirect you to any SSL/HTTPS pages during any part of the checkout process. Technically, if you are using a 3rd party payment provider, it doesn’t need to, but I’d like customers name/address data to be encrypted and secure.

So we need to force SSL on specific pages.Download the WPSSL (WordPress with SSL) plugin

Download and install the plugin.
Now edit your Shopp / Checkout / Cart / My account pages and add a custom field falled “force_ssl” with a value of “true”.

  1. Hello,

    I’m surely kinda dumb but I don’t understand what you mean by adding a custom field.
    The ‘Shopp->Pages’ section of the WP interface does not have an option for adding custom fields.
    Do I need to edit the shopp php files? If so, can you please provide same code I need to add to the php files?
