Consumers will abort purchase if no visible sign of security is present
HTTPS is more important than ever for your business because consumers demand security. 9 in 10 consumers want visible signs of security on a webshop. This was shown in a survey conducted by YouGov in October 2017.
Internet security concerns have been the reason for the abortion of online purchases for 4 in 10 participants in the YouGov survey. If users don’t feel secure making a purchase in a webshop, they will likely go to a competing webshop with better internet security.
Being cheated on the internet is a real risk. 2 in 10 answered in the YouGov survey that they had been cheated online in relation to internet shopping. Such experiences might make consumers extra aware of internet scams.

Internet security is a business advantage, and you must consider the consequences of not having an SSL certificate on your website. If you want your online business to grow, you must protect your website with HTTPS.
