When you create an online store and add a security certificate to your website, you are not only earning the trust of your customers but also gaining the trust of Google.
Starting from January 2017, Google is taking strong steps to ensure a safer internet for all users and is going to mark all HTTP sites collecting passwords and credit card details as nonsecure. On the other hands, sites having HTTPS in their address bar have the trust of Google and get rewarded by better SEO and SERP rankings.
