Your site is using CloudFlare so it makes no difference which cert you put on your backend server.
No one will ever see it.

There isnt any difference in SEO or encryption strength between free and paid certificates. Let’s encrypt is trusted by all major browsers and devices just the same as another cert.

The main difference is lifespan. Let’s Encrypt certs are only good for 90 days which makes automation essential (simple with certbot) and improves security since if an attacker steals it they can only exploit that for a maximum of 90 days. Paid certs can be valid for up to 2 years.

Edit:. Just saw the cloudflare comment. In that case disregard this and just issue an origin cert good for 10 years from the cloudflare control panel.
