Hi,
I am in a need for a SSL certificate to communicate with 3rd party component.

I can see many vendors supplying SSL and not sure real difference between them. I can see different Insurance cover with each price tag and I am not worried for it.

Will a cheap SSL cause browser to raise an alert saying cert is from Unidentified source? My site need to work on mobile devices + every OS so it has to be compliant with all browsers. It's needed for business so I don't want to see any browser warnings.

http://www.cheapssls.com/ selling for  8$/year
https://www.thawte.com/ssl/index.html 599/year
http://www.rapidssl.com/ 49$/year
https://www.servertastic.com/rapidssl/ 15$/year

Thanks

Yes you can use less expensive SSL certs without errors on clients.

I personally use godaddy. They have $5 specials everwhere for SSL's

You did not provide enough detailing the types of certificate you need.

Your initial suggest that you need a client authenticating certificate.
In your later comment, you suggest that you need to secure a site so tha it can be accessed by others with various devices.

You can get the cheaper while including the complete CA chain to avoid the alerts by browsers.
