Hi there - I was wondering if you plan use incription for your sign-in page. It would make me feel much more secure in using your service.

Thanks-in-advance

You mean SSL?

It -is- used, your username/password is sent over SSL.
After session id is generated you're back on regular http.
So credentials are sent over SSL, but data is not.

OK, I added the message "Your login is SSL protected" underneath login fields... Hopefully less people will be turned away thinking it's an insecure login.

OK - I only asked because FireFox didn't show a 'Locked' icon when I was in the sign-in field. Thanks for the quick response, I'll have to try your service for my next auction.

And it's not going to show it, as login page is not SSL, only the target page (which is the one that matters). After you login, you will again not see the padlock, as by that time you are redirected back to regular http after session id is generated.
