Thinking about Dreampress/Wordpress

I have a specific need to use it for photography & photography based blogging and selling digital goods as well as hard/tangible goods. I don’t know how much Dreamhost can answer specific to my questions about what I can use with Wordpress for e-commerce so I’ll ask and see what is going to be said about that.

I see that e-commerce is available; is SSL included? (fee?) Since dreampress is a managed setup, will dreamhost setup the SSL?

With that being said I want to use a storefront that supports stripe payments
