SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificates encrypt data that is transmitted between the server and your visitors. Encrypting the traffic ensure that anyone doing packet sniffing, monitoring network traffic, or other packet reading methods do not capture the real data and makes it almost impossible to decrypt the information.
PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliance requires SSL connections to be used during all credit card related transactions. This ensures that card information is secure and no fraud can occur from card information being snooped on the Internet on during transmission.
