Is anybody else concerned that the website is not secure?

Yes, absolutely. I don't even know why it is not secure because I don't seem to have any problems associated with using the site but I'm sure it causes concern for potential users.

Agreed. Even if the site is secure, whatever technical thing is tripping the system to make it seemed unsecured should be fixed. It's probably dissuading a lot of people from using this website.

Yah, seems the site has no certificate, HTTP only, not HTTPS. I wouldn't give CCL any personal information at all (e.g., credit card numbers), as the information transferred would not be encrypted. Definitely a BAD BAD thing for an eCommerce site. Angry

Does anyone know what would be preventing CCL from getting that HTTPS certificate to ensure encryption? Is it a cost thing, or a lazy thing?

Properly signed and trusted certificates to cost a little bit of money, but not much. Looks like a decision on their part, though; if the site had a trusted certificate and it expired, I think it'd show a different error.

The shopping cart/checkout doesn't even redirect to a secure site (so far as I can tell without actually making a purchase). I wouldn't buy anything through CCL until that's fixed. Just asking for trouble. Let's hope one of the staff sees this thread and explains why CCL has no HTTPS certificate.

The checkout process is handled by paypal and is secure. There are secure pages when it comes to inputting your credit card info for subscriptions and setting up a store though. Just the main browsing parts of the site aren't secure.


Edit... all parts of the site where you input card #'s or personal information is secure.

The site did once have a secured certificate. When I first saw the alerts some years ago, it said the site had an expired certificate.

And as was mentioned, all payment pages are still secure, as well as PayPal redirects.

The payment processing and login are secure. So we have some secure pages, and some that are not secure. Most of the information pages are not secure, but the important ones are.

This is something we are working on as it slows down our google indexing, and most websites now secure all pages. We are working on a very large upgrade to the site, and building in the ability to secure all pages.

Also, the avatars that people use are not hosted with us, and we are working on that as well, so that all graphics can be secure as well. We are about 95% finished with the update. It is a very large update, and entails new search engine, new inventory management, and the ability to track your collection online.

Thanks for the information, Joe! I am absolutely stoked to hear that! Can't wait. Daydreaming

I will delay my first purchase, when the website is secure, even if the payment page is secure, I am just more comfortable with a green lock from page to page, the only downside is the old comics I want could go up in value again.

There is a way to circumvent processing through the CCL website. Simply choose "Money Order/Check" option at checkout, then have the seller send you a payment request via PayPal independent of the CCL website. This way CCL still gets their 5% too, so everyone is happy.
