Free SSL certificate with CloudFlare

  • Answered
Hi, I have a free CloudFlare account and it comes with a free limited SSL certificate.
My question is:

I am making an E-Learning website and would like to know if this license is enough to take credit card payments on my website.

Thank You for your time.
Hello rdizazzo,

Thank you for your question about Free SSL security. All SSLs have the same level of security, so a free one uses the same protocol as the one that costs $300 per year. The difference is in the level of validation one goes through to get the SSL. As long as the SSL provides the green lock on the browser, it will be accepted by the general public as valid.

Kindest Regards,
