Do I need a secure certificate to use Miva Merchant?
Yes, usually.

Unless you use a third-party payment solution where the customer is taken off your site to a secure address, you'll need to obtain a secure certificate so that your transactions are secure (i.e. encrypted).

You can request a certificate from GeoTrust:

A certificate costs $159 and up. (one comes free on the Strictly Business plan)

Make sure that the domain name for your certificate is the same as the domain name of your store (for example: store.yourdomain.com).
