When advertising on Google

If you want to advertise on Google Shopping, you must have https on your website. If not, your webshop risk to be suspended and therefore can not use the shopping function.

There must be at least https on the pages for the purchase process, where customers must fill in personal data in order to buy the product.
If your website has a subscription form for newsletters, where customers also must write personal sensitive data such as name and email, this page must also have https.

There are several benefits to using https:

  • Customers can feel safer, which may increase sales and conversion rate.
  • Google has confirmed that it also gets a ranking boost, on the SEO part.

As mentioned, you can also advertise on Google Shopping if you have https.
