I want to comply with webshop legislation or webshop quality marks.
Any type of SSL certificate is suitable to comply with applicable legislation and quality marks, even the low-priced domain validation certificate.
However, an EV certificate is more suitable for webshops because of the identity guarantee and visible company name. A Domain validated certificate ensures a secured connection and shows a padlock in the browser bar, but it doesn't enable visitors to check the organisation behind the website. Only the ownership of the domain will be checked, which doesn't say anything about (the trustworthiness of) the organisation.
Because more checks are being performed before certificate issuance, certificates with company data provide more trust and protection to visitors. If for instance a company goes bankrupt, the certificate will be revoked immediately.
With an EV certificate websites look more professional and trustworthy. Because of the company name in the info block, visitors can tell immediately who owns the website.
An often heard complaint, besides the higher price, is the difficult and long application process that usually takes at least a week. For Comodo certificates we do our own validation. This way, we can deliver Comodo EV certificates already within a day. There's also no need to provide us with documentation for the application.
