We offer you the ability to secure your online store using 256-bit SSL encryption. An SSL connection is an encrypted connection between web servers and web browser (visitors to your store). It's recognizable by the https:// prefix in the URL. This connection ensures that any data transferred between web servers and browsers remains private and safe. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfers and logins.
If you haven't yet set up SSL encryption, it's important to note that for all pages in your online store that require data protection, such as your store's checkout area, we automatically redirect customers to one of the following encrypted URLs (depending on your location):
European merchants: https://domainname.webshopapp.com
North American merchants: https://domainname.shoplightspeed.com
Lightspeed eCom stores are hosted from a secure location, where all data transfers occur over a 256-bit SSL connection. In addition, data transfers between your online store and our databases are encrypted. Personal information, including payment data and any private customer data, is transferred and stored in encrypted form.
