SSL security

SSL, or “secure sockets layer”, is security encryption technology used on lots of websites to prevent evildoers on the internet from stealing or intercepting info submitted via online forms.

In general, sites covered with SSL protection start with the prefix https:// instead of simply http://. You might also notice a lock icon in address bar of your browser on SSL-protected sites.

All Big Cartel checkouts are fully SSL encrypted using the strongest protections available, so the personal details and payment info your customers enter when buying items in your shop will be safe and sound.

The Big Cartel admin (where you log in to your shop to make changes behind the scenes) is also under lock and key with SSL encryption. 🔒

Since we don’t allow file uploads to our servers, there isn’t a way to install a third-party or custom domain SSL certificate in a Big Cartel shop. But your checkout will always be covered automatically by SSL protection, so no sensitive data is transferred without that layer of security.
