Can I insert eshop plugin in my wordpress?

  1. I am looking advice on this matter:

    I was searching for solution to sell downloadable ebooks (pdf) directly from my blog (see my blog site: http://alinademeter.ro/)

    I have found the information that there isare WordPress pluginns like: eshop or Jigoshop which seems to be what I am looking for (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/eshop/installation/)

    What it is not clear for me is if I can insert this plugin in my wordpress blog? Can I do this, if yes please give me short instructions how I can do this.

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is alinademeter.ro.

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

    More to the point is this. No blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products 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

    I suggest that if these realities are deal breakers for you then your can hire a web host and set up your own self hosted WordPress.org install from http://wordpress.org/
