There is no good way to install it right now...We would need to install but it is a complex process.
But you shouldn't need to buy one.

Give it a try with out an https link and see if works? It would be crazy if facebook requires each and every website setup a secure site/page that is expensive and not easy to setup.

I did that, all it renders is an "x".   Then they send you Https instructions but I don't have access to backend of site.   SSL's are cheap these days.


I accomplished this for a Job Board that i run and it tripled my traffic.  Here is a link so you can see how it looks, https://www.facebook.com/destinjobs

Its the(Search Tab).
