    Best ecommerce Solution

    Hi

    I have a site that I am trying to sell products on: amazingecoproducts.com. I have a business license, and a seller's permit for the state of CA.

    I am trying to set up e-commerce. I've been researching difference solutions, and have set up 2 different options:

    1) Products, using PayPal, which is free, they just get their 'cut' of 2.85% or whatever.


    2) Products, with woocommerce


    which I found needs an SSL cert ($15/yr) and a dedicated IP ($15/month). I read elsewhere I don't need one of the two, if I have something else (I forget now).

    Is this right? Isn't there a better way, like Square Up, or a PayPal kind of portal which looks like a standard check out (and not PayPal's check out) from major e-commerce sites, or do I really need the SSL and/or a dedicated IP?

    Thanks

    You need secure protocol. In other way payment data can be stolen.

    It's the dedicated IP that you don't need if you have a newer server. I believe it's Windows Server 2012 (it's not Windows Server 2008) and newer versions of cPanel on Linux that will let you get away without one, but I haven't had a chance to look into it yet.

    Thanks all.

    I checked with DreamHost, my hosting company, and they said I just need an SSL certificate, but I don't think I'll need the dedicated IP.

    That's weird, every website needs a dedicated IP. Is this on a shared hosting?
