Our Gift to You…

13 Oct

Freewebstore is delighted to announce a platform upgrade; we’re giving each and every one of our 500,000+ users an SSL – for free! Better still, you don’t even have to lift a finger!

A lil’ bit more information…

77% of consumers are worried that their personal information could end up in the wrong hands(Global Sign). Having an SSL enabled on your web store will instill buyers confidence and increase sales.

Here’s an example of what your customers will see without you having an SSL enabled:


This is an example of what your customers will see with our free SSL feature:


Is it for me?

If you’ve got a web store and want your customers to feel fully secure increasing shoppers confidence then yes, this is for you!

Why are we doing this?

1. Love. We love our store owners and we want to give you EVERY chance of success possible. 💙

2. Added security and buyers confidence. 77% of consumers are worried that atheir personal information could end up in the wrong hands. This feature will reassure your customers this is not the case!

3. Improve your SEO. Google is making changes to their algorithms and this will start to take HTTPS as a ranking signal and, if stores are not SSL protected, this could have an impact on where the store sits on the search engine.

When will I be able to claim my SSL?

Freewebstore started rolling out the SSL feature across the board and this will be available to all of our users.
