Extended validation ssl

Msg#: 4038314 posted 8:45 pm on Dec 6, 2009 (gmt 0)

Similarly to my other post (but more expensively :) a friend of mine, who i trust a lot when it comes to things like this has said i should look at getting an Extended Validation SSL for my ecommerce website? Is it worth it, sure it turns green but does it convert better for example?

The only time anybody is going to see it is when they are in the checkout process so they are pretty up for buying by that time. I have one and am not convinced personally but don't have any hard and fast stats to back it up.

If you’ve got an ecommerce site, you should definitely get an EV certificate. You should also consider getting one if you want the best protection against phishing attacks.

An EV certificate will also help to boost confidence in your website, your business and you (if you want to demonstrate best practice to your management).

Nobody besides webmasters, banks and the guys selling the EV certificates has noticed the existence of those things.

Go ask a few friends that are not webmasters if they ever noticed or ever heard of such a thing as an Extended Evaluation certificate or if they noticed turning something green on a website.

jecasc .... i've dont just that, all of them say the address bar turning green make them feel more confident in the transaction. You are right they have no clue what it even means, but the changing to green does make a difference.

when wells fargo, chase, and capital one decide it's worth it, I'll consider it.
