E-Commerce sites, usually take payments via credit card or PayPal. Websites that acquire this type of information from users MUST practice "Due Diligence" in protecting their clientele.

Secure Connections and security certificates are some of the ways they ensure this. It is unwise to use any digital financial information with a site that does not practice this.

There are various reason behind this. First, customer needs to provide their personal and confidential details such as credit card number, password, email address and CVV number. Also, many eCommerce businesses keep track of their online sales, purchase and stock information from their website backend server. That is why website security is important from the user and admin perspective. E-Commerce business owner mostly installs Wildcard SSL Certificate on their web server because eCommerce website may use multiple subdomains. Also, wildcard certificate is cost effective and easy to manage, if an eCommerce website has a large number of subdomains.
