SSL security options

Trycatch also supply security certificates to our online customers

SSL security essential for online shops,See more info below:

 

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.

To be able to create an SSL connection a web server requires an SSL Certificate. When you choose to activate SSL on your web server you will be prompted to complete a number of questions about the identity of your website and your company. Your web server then creates two cryptographic keys – a Private Key and a Public Key.

The Public Key does not need to be secret and is placed into a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) – a data file also containing your details. You should then submit the CSR. During the SSL Certificate application process, the Certification Authority will validate your details and issue an SSL Certificate containing your details and allowing you to use SSL. Your web server will match your issued SSL Certificate to your Private Key. Your web server will then be able to establish an encrypted link between the website and your customer’s web browser.

The complexities of the SSL protocol remain invisible to your customers. Instead their browsers provide them with a key indicator to let them know they are currently protected by an SSL encrypted session – the lock icon in the lower right-hand corner, clicking on the lock icon displays your SSL Certificate and the details about it. All SSL Certificates are issued to either companies or legally accountable individuals.

Typically an SSL Certificate will contain your domain name, your company name, your address, your city, your state and your country. It will also contain the expiration date of the Certificate and details of the Certification Authority responsible for the issuance of the Certificate. When a browser connects to a secure site it will retrieve the site’s SSL Certificate and check that it has not expired, it has been issued by a Certification Authority the browser trusts, and that it is being used by the website for which it has been issued. If it fails on any one of these checks the browser will display a warning to the end user letting them know that the site is not secured by SSL.

Be sure to visit SSLTools.com for some great services and tools to assist in your implementation of ssl on your site or if you want to examine the ssl certificates of other websites.

South African Payment Gateway (PAYFAST)

It just got a little easier for #WordPress (or more precisely #Woothemes) sites to connect with clients through WooCommerce – a plugin application with lots of great features and #customisable themes – and turn their sites into easy to use e-commerce platforms.

WooCommerce is a great way for businesses to quickly and professionally build a professional online shopping site, without the technical know-how (and headaches) of traditional #e-Commerce platforms.

“This has been in the works for quite a while and now we’re proud to officially launch WooCommerce,” said Adii Pienaar, co-founder and CEO of WooThemes. “We’ve spent the last 4 years building and selling themes. We’re one of the top theme providers and a trusted partner for millions. We have a lot to be thankful for. But we’re not resting. We’re taking everything we’ve learned along to the way, and are doubling down on WordPress, with a new application layer that tightly integrates with our themes and gives customers precisely the kind of end-to-end, holistic solution that they’ve been asking us for.”

“This is a big day for the whole team,” said Magnus Jepson, co-founder of WooThemes. “We’ve built a #fast-growing business. Now, we want to turn great themes into great applications. If your business wants to sell more products or services online, WooCommerce is your first stop.”

South African users have the option to quickly and easily integrate #PayFast with their WooCommerce installation, allowing them to receive payments funded by credit card, Instant EFT and uKash.

You can get the free download, view videos and features and learn more about #WooCommerce here, or check out the WooCommerce plugin for WordPress here.

If you’re looking to accept instant payments for your smashing new WooThemes commerce page, head over here to get the PayFast plugin. We’re really excited about being included on the WooCommerce platform, giving you yet another way of getting your online store selling. Got a WooCommerce site?

Paypal Gateway integration on wordpress

paypal-checkoutPaypal is already integrated,installed and supported by wordpress as a integrated function on Woocommerce and or alternatively you can choose from the many other supported free paypal plugins that include donation plugins as well.

With popularity picking up in the SA online shop market to use paypal ,commotion expenses on paypal still a little bit high compared to the other payment gateways like Payfast but in my opinion easier the use for the customers.

Very easy to setup the Paypal gateway on wordpress: Login to wordpess > navigate to woocommerce > setup > checkout and edit the Paypal gateway and enter your email and coupon code from Paypal and you ready to go.

What is a wordpress website?

wordpress-logo-stacked-rgb

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL.[5] WordPress is installed on a web server, which either is part of an Internet hosting service or is a network host itself; the first case may be on a service like WordPress.com, for example, and the second case is a computer running the software package WordPress.org.[6] An example of the second case is a local computer configured to act as its own web server hosting WordPress for single-user testing or learning purposes. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress was used by more than 26.4% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2016.[7]WordPress is reportedly the easiest and most popular blogging system in use on the Web,[8] supporting more than 60 million websites.[9]

It was released on May 27, 2003, by its founders, Matt Mullenweg[1] and Mike Little,[10] as a fork of b2/cafelog. WordPress is released under the GPLv2 (or later) license from the Free Software Foundation.[11]
