Donorbox’s recurring donation form can be easily embedded into your Wix website. However, your website must be SSL-secure to ensure your donors’ sensitive information is protected from third-party interception.
In this blog, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about SSL on Wix Websites, including how to ensure your free SSL certificate is working to protect your donors.
Why is SSL on Wix Websites So Important?
SSL, or secure sockets layer, is a cryptographic protocol that establishes secure connections between network computers. In other words, it helps keep data from getting intercepted by third parties.
In addition to securing your donor’s information, having the necessary donation form SSL on Wix builds trust with your donors and boosts your nonprofit’s brand. It shows that you are responsible with your donor’s data and up to date with the technological requirements of our modern world.
Steps to Enable SSL On Your Wix Website
Sign up for your account and create your website on Wix.
You’ll need to choose your website type, give your website a name, and decide whether your website will be for business or personal use.
Whether you’re using a free or custom domain, you’ll need to add that information to your account.
Once you confirm that your domain is available, simply complete the process of setting up your website. If you’re using a custom domain through Wix, you’ll need to upgrade to one of Wix’s paid account options.
Your domain and free SSL certificate should be ready for testing right away.
Note: You can also purchase an SSL certificate from a Certificate Authority. To upload this, simply visit the “Security” tab on your Wix website builder.
Check that your SSL certificate is working. Load your website to confirm that it is indeed SSL-secure. The page will load with an https prefix in front of your web address. A lock icon will also appear on the left-hand side of your URL.
That’s all! It’s easy to ensure you have a secure website that protects you and your donors.
You’re ready to embed your Donorbox donation form on your SSL-secured Wix Website.
Follow this step-by-step guide. Embedding your donation form creates a seamless experience for your donors, with a checkout that’s four times faster!
