Ensuring your website is secure

To have your Mobi2Go storefront embedded into your website it must be secured by an SSL certificate.

The first step is to contact your website designer or developer and ask them to purchase and install an SSL certificate. If you look after your web hosting yourself, your web host will be able to help out.

SSL certificates cost approximately $100 USD annually and are a separate charge to the cost to host your website.

Next you need to ensure your website is always served over https by setting up a redirect. Your website developer will know how to do this, or there will be a setting with your host. Depending on how your website is made it could be a very simple change to an .htaccess file

Once set up customers will see a "Secure" lock to the left of the address bar, and they'll confidently place their orders:

What if I don't do this?

If your website is not secure you won't be able to embed your Mobi2Go storefront. In that case customers will be redirected to your secure mobi2go.com subdomain.

If your website designer has spent a long time on your embedded Mobi2Go storefront, your mobi2go.com subdomain may not look and feel as good. To ensure you know what that will look like for customers, login to Mobi2Go, go to your Settings > Website settings, and click the Domain Name to get a preview.
