Chain Reaction Cycles on my blog

  1. Hi. I want to ad a banner from Chain Reaction Cycles to my blog as I'm a partner with them. Is this possible?
    Blog url: http://northtynebikerepair.wordpress.com/

  2. Is it an affiliate banner? I had a lengthy chat with someone from WP support about the subject. An affiliate banner would be purely promotional. Based on the understanding I developed, that wouldn't be allowed.

  3. Is this possible?

    No. It is not allowed.

    There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com and it’s for blogs on their own domains. This is the homepage for the WordAds program: http://www.wordads.co/ There you will find the application page as well as FAQs.

    Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds, no blogger initiated advertising, no paid content or sponsored content and no 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

    If you do require that kind of a site 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/
