Creation an online store with wordpress.com

  1. I just went ahead and purchased a domain name with WordPress and now I'm planning on using it as an online shopping website. However there is a problem since I'm not quite tech savvy; I don't really understand the differences between wordpress.com and wordpress.org. I believe you need certain plugins that only wordpress.org has to start the website, but I'm just completely blind on this matter. If there was a step by step guide how to create an online shopping website with wordpress.com it would be such a great help to me.

    The blog I need help with is dotingdamsel.com.

  3. Well, let's start with this: You cannot use WordPress.com to start an online shopping site, because the ecommerce software will be stripped out here as a security risk.

    Don't cancel your custom domain, though. You can just change where it points and connect it to a different website once you have that set up.

    You will need to get paid hosting and software from WordPress.org. Once you have that, change the domain so it points to that new site. Then you can install ecommerce plugins, etc at will. Support for WordPress.org site and plugins is over at WordPress.org.

  4. Thank you! I guess I'll just use the blog as is.
