Anyone can use https, but it requires a digital certificate to be implemented on your server, such as a SSL certificate. Such certificates can be purchased from hosting companies and the like for hundreds of dollars per year. That's about where I stopped looking into that, so the rest of it is over my head as well.
I assume smaller websites just can't justify the cost.
I'd recommend having a peek at what Paypal offers before giving up on your idea.
