i enabled ssl on a site that i will commence e-commerce sales shortly and wanted to ask a quick question. do i really need to purchase an ssl certificate? i will be running paypal as the payment gateway and i assume paypals network is highly secure. i feel that their is a need for ssl during the initial customer information capture but wanted to know if i could just sign the certificate myself since it would just tecnically just be encrypting a couple pages at most. maybe a my account section but i assume everything else would be handled by paypal. is this correct? can i just sign the certificate some way and get the box to dissapear?
