【SSL Enforcement】 Checklist for HTTPS URL Update


After SSL service has been fully enforced on all custom domains, all domains will be encrypted with HTTPS and any website address including that of HTTP will all be redirected to HTTPS version. If you have installed any third party tools, you may need to do some manual updates for the URLs. Please take a look below for the different things that you may need to update (order according to importance):



First please update and make sure all in-store URLs have been updated to HTTPS URLs

Example: In your page edit, Products Description, you may have added a page link to your carousel banner. That will require update to HTTPS page link manually ,otherwise,  the images won't be loaded because of SSL encrypted environment.


If you have set up Facebook Login for Customers in your shop, please update
