If you use the PayPal Powered by Braintree payment gateway you'll need an SSL certificate on your website. This is because your customer doesn't leave your website to make their payment and enters their card details on your website. Having an SSL certificate actually benefits your website in many different ways, and, as of December 2015, we now actively recommend that all users use an SSL certificate on their website.
