Adding ecommerce plugin

  1. Apologies for sounding dim. I have a wordpress site and have my own url hosted via wordpress (paid for the name, extra storage space etc.)

    How do I upload plug-ins such as WP E-commerce please?

    I tried using Filezilla but don't know the FTP address to do it...

    Thanks for your help!

    The blog I need help with is dottyandalice.com.

  2. This blog http://dottyandalice.com/ linked to your username is one we provide support for on this forum, which is only for support for blogs being hosted by WordPress.com. There is no upgrade you can purchase from wordpress.com that will provide the ability to upload plugins. All blogs hosted anywhere else are supported on this forum > http://wordpress.org

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs like the one linked to your username and we cannot install individual plugins or third party themes into them. Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    I’m afraid e-commerce isn’t currently possible here at WordPress.com as our free hosted blogs cannot be equipped for ecommerce transactions at this time. If you require e-commerce/shopping cart functionality, there are no restrictions on e-commerce if you setup a self-hosted WordPress.org blog instead of a free hosted WordPress.com blog.
