I have a WP site and SSL. I want to process my payments through Paypal using SSL. I’m not sure how to make the 2 work together.
I read that I just need to allocate an https page as my checkout page. But how do I make that a wordpress page if my wordpress site isn’t in the ssl folder?

If you are using the Standard PayPal checkout (where the credit card details are entered on PayPal’s site) you have no need to use SSL certification on your site. PayPal will securely process the payment from your customer on there site.
I mean there is no harm in adding SSL certification on your site and making a few page use “https” but some people don’t realize that they don’t actually need it.June 6, 2012 at 5:46 pm #45393joshd2mMember
If I am using PayPal Pro and your payment gateway plugin, should we get an SSL certificate? Are there any setting or issues with the plugins I should know about?June 6, 2012 at 6:54 pm #45394
Having your site run SSL 24/7 ensures all communications between your visitors and the site are encrypted. This is a nice touch, if you want your customers to “feel comfortable” with surfing your site. You can use the “Force SSL” plugin to accomplish this.
My own site uses this plugin to run SSL 24/7: http://TheAssurer.com
If you run your site on SSL, purchase an SSL certificate from your hosting provider. Do not try to use a “self issued certificate,” as many new browsers will now alert the user to this fact.September 26, 2012 at 1:26 am #45395DFranzwaMember
Along these same lines, I have recently added SSL to my site. I’ve been taking care of “insecure content” issues and ran across this one when I edited a product in wp eStore.
Running WP “version”:”3.3.1″
WP eStore Version v5.8.6
URL currently working on:
Warning: get_headers() [function.get-headers]: Unable to find the wrapper “https” – did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP? in /home/USER/public_html/SITE.COM/wp-content/plugins/wp-cart-for-digital-products/eStore_utility_functions.php on line 69
Warning: get_headers() [function.get-headers]: This function may only be used against URLs in /home/USER/public_html/SITE.COM/wp-content/plugins/wp-cart-for-digital-products/eStore_utility_functions.php on line 69
Any hints as to what I’m supposed to do with that?
I also received an error when I changed the button graphic to https, but the browsers find it just fine, so I’m not worried about that.
Any help appreciated.

I don’t see any error when I go to the URL you shared. Is this an error you only see when you edit a eStore product in the WP admin side?
I would also recommend you to load a fresh copy of eStore too:October 29, 2012 at 1:58 am #45397
I’m not using PayPal, I am only using eWay because my client is a charity and therefore needs more accountability than PayPal provides.
So….. to enable SSL checkout on the WordPress site? How do I do that?October 29, 2012 at 2:09 am #45398
Did you see my response to your other SSL thread?
Remember, as mentioned earlier in this thread, you must also purchase an SSL certificate from your provider.November 17, 2012 at 10:56 am #45399
