Hi. I was buying SSL from Gogetssl. Their cheapest price is $4.5/yr. But they don't accept credit card payments(Paypal, Skrill is forbidden on our country by our government) and I cannot add deposit.
Do you know another SSL provider(under $5/yr) that accept credit card payments directly?

Also we provide Let's Encrypt for free to our hosting customers(we have a hosting business separately).
 But do you know a paid DV SSL required instead of Let's Encrypt for an ecommerce site? Or can be Let's Encrypt enough?


I would say that it depends entirely on what customer information you are storing and transacting with on your server.

If you are using an external payment processor like Stripe or Paypal and payment card information never passes through your servers then I don't see much reason why a free SSL from an authority like LE is not absolutely fine.


Let's Encrypt certificates are perfectly fine for ecommerce sites.

Technically they are not different from DV certificates, same encryption, same everything, except the marketing/branding that browsers may display.

Of course its typical for various nefarious people to try to sell certificates by pretending as if they provide something extra. They don't.

Paid certificates are nothing but a scam. Do not fall for them, unless you want the extra "marketing" that comes with DV certificates.

The price for SSL certificates typically ranges from $7 to $15 per year. However, if you buy a certificate for several years at once (3-5), then you can count on a discount of 30 to 90%. I personally bought here -
I note right away that I took it for 5 years and used just a credit card (it is not tied to PayPal). It cost me $21.95 (this is for five years, that is, $4.39 per year).
I know that the guys from also accept cards. The price is $3.88/year if taken for five years.
