Can I add a shoping cart to my blog ?

  1. just wondering if it is possible to add a shopping cart or pay button to my page ?

    thanks

    The blog I need help with is doozytags.wordpress.com.

  2. No you cannot. 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. See here to learn the differences: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    You can use an unencrypted PayPal donation button and/or a contact form.

    That link will not load. :(

    why only donations?

    I'm only a Volunteers and we do not make policy. In a nutshell no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed on free hosted wordpress.COM blogs. E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by WordPress.COM.

    The advertising exceptions noted in support documentation are for high traffic blogs that qualify for and are accepted into the Ad Control program, and for extremely high traffic blogs that qualify and are accepted into the paid VIP hosting program.

    If you need more clarity on free hosted WordPress.com blog then please contact Staff.

    If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Refer to > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
