If you click on the aforementioned link, you will notice that the "https" in the URL is in green--a signature that I care about my customers' protection while browsing my store.

The "https" protocol ensures that all information from the customer's browser to the server is secure. Not only does it protect page authenticity, but also securing accounts and keeping user communications, identity, and web browsing private. I recommend those in e-commerce to upgrade their pages to https.

Just in case if anyone is wondering, "https" is an acroynm for "Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure." What is ironic, it is not a protocol in itself; rather a layering the Hypertext Transfer Protocol on top of the SSL/TLS protocol, thus adding the security capabilities of SSL/TLS to standard HTTP communications.
Thanks, greekman and Lana! Really, really helpful! Like most things, it's confusing if you don't know anything about it. Once it's explained, it's not all that mysterious.
