Is there a difference between Universal SSL and SSL on a paid plan?

Yes, there are subtle differences that typically should not be noticeable by your clients. The biggest difference is that Universal SSL uses SNI which is a relatively newer technology than SAN being used on paid plans. This can typically cause issues with older OS or browsers.
