If you haven’t heard, Aabaco / Yahoo! Small Business will be switching all stores over to HTTPS this October. What does that mean for you? First, it means that your store will won’t get a warning after Google begins issuing warnings to users who try to access sites that aren’t HTTPS. Second, it means that this upgrade will come to you free of charge and you won’t have to pay for an SSL certificate if you’ve been dragging your feet switching your store over. Third, and most important, this change could have an impact on any custom code you currently use on your store.
Yahoo recommends, “To prepare for the upgrade, please convert all custom-coded/manually entered insecure images and scripts to HTTPS. It’s safe to have secure image(s) and script(s) on insecure pages so it’s recommended that you start preparing soon.”
