Adding a Security Seal to Your Store
Merchants who accept credit cards are required by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) to process transactions over a securely encrypted channel. An SSL certificate verifies that all transactions take place over the encrypted secure socket layer (SSL). Displaying an SSL Security Seal from a trusted provider is a quick way to boost your customers' confidence that their transactions in your store will be safe and secure.
Step 1: Find the Code You Want to Use
Most SSL providers will offer badges, banners, or icons in different styles and sizes. Follow the instructions on the site to copy the code, and then paste it into a text editor until you are ready to use it.
Step 2: Create a Block for the Icon
- From the Admin menu, select CMS > Static Blocks. Then, in the upper-right corner, click the Add New Block button.
- Complete the required fields.
- Block Title
- Store View
- Click the Show/Hide Editor button to work with the HTML code. Then, in the Content section, paste the code that you copied from the SSL site.
- When complete, click the Save Block button.
Step 3: Use the Frontend App Tool to Place the Block
Use the Frontend App tool to place the block that you created at a specific location in your store. You can experiment with different block references to find the location that works best. For more precise positioning, you can also make adjustments to your theme's CSS style sheet.
