When you reference images in your store, make sure that you use relative
paths like ../images/image.gif and NOT absolute paths like
Merchant appropriately switches the visitor from the non-secure server to the secure
server as he is about to checkout. That is critical to ensure that the transaction
is secure and the credit card number is transmitted in an encrypted way. Now if you
use absolute paths, the pages loading in the secure server will be calling the images from
the non-secure server and the customers' browsers will send it and give an alert that some
items on the page are non-secure. Needless to say, some customers will be concerned
and some may refrain from checking out. Using relative paths will ensure that the
images will be called from the appropriate server as the switch occurs.
