1. It just like shopping for hosting, a car, or even a hospital to get care from. You should look for reviews and so on to see who make the "cuts" you are looking for.
2. Now of days it seems to me that...
DV (Domain Validated):free providers like Let's Encrypt or Comdo Positive will cut the mustard. As they tend to have the similar "popularity", protection, and/or etc.
OV (Organization Validated): These are worth paying for IF your wishing to "prove" that you are the organization you are. Personally these are probably better for like non profits or companies that handle more sensitive purchases like jewelry, computer systems, and/or etc. As these customers will (hopefully) likely look for PROOFS that if they paying hundreds literally over Ethernet it's going to a solid standing brand/good cause.
EV (Extended Validated): It's the most expensive and for a reason... It's requires up to a few weeks of validation as you actually has to phone in and so on. Thankfully most of us won't NEED it as we are not banks or places like Paypal. Or even larger shops like Amazon. As long as your not processing like over 250k USD/year I don't believe you are required to have one in order be "compliance". As a DV would works until/if you reach such a bracket.
