An SSL certificate is a mechanism to encrypt or scramble the data being transmitted between your site and your customers browser. The customer will probably be trying to buy goods and services from you and are highly unlikely to type in credit card numbers or bank account details if there is even the slightest possibility that they can be highjacked from your site.
An SSL certificate is commonly confirmed on a website by either a green bar or a padlock symbol in the navigation bar of your browser. You are probably used to typing an address with https:// or the sites address changing from http://www.website.com to https://www.website.com. The ‘s’ in https is for ‘secure’.
Don’t go shopping without it !
