Personally, with our little growing business, we can't yet afford the
SSL certificate, so we found some alternatives: we are registered with
B-PAY, which costs nothing to set up and only charge a modest fee per
transaction, and we also use PayPal, which also doesn't rip you off.
These solutions enable your customers to pay online using their credit
cards (in a bank deposit kind of way, they need to do it through their
banking institution if they use B-PAY).
I'll let you know when we move onto SSL transactions.
