WooCommerce gateway that doesn't require an SSL certificate?

Hey Guys,

Does anyone know of a good WooCommerce gateway that doesn't require an SSL certificate? Because I see that Stripe needs one! Does PayPal Pro?

You will need an SSL certificate if you accept payments on site. You could use any of these off site gateways http://www.woothemes.com/product-category/woocommerce-extensions/payment-gateways/off-site-payment-gateways/ without an SSL. Off site means they will leave your site temporarily to make a payment.

Pro tip - update to newest Woo-commerce ASAP. One of the researchers at Wordfence discovered a SQL injection vulnerability in WooCommerce yesterday. They just pushed an update to fix it.

Yes, agreed with ghost code, you'll need a SSL to payments on your site. But as mentioned, there are options for payment off of your site if that's what you want.
