Domain mapping cost on top of bundle?

  1. Hello,

    I already have a domain, thebookpsychologists.com, registered previously. I purchased a bundle today, so I could have that URL work with the WordPress software. It seems like the system is saying I need to pay the additional $13 for the domain mapping, on top of the bundle price--is that correct? Otherwise I am having a hard time figuring out how to make sure it maps correctly. When all is said and done, the URL people will see will be thebookpsychologists.com, correct, instead of thebookpsychologists.wordpress.com?

    The bundle says a domain registration was included--since I already have this domain registered, could I register an unrelated domain?

    Thank you!

  3. The bundle includes one domain upgrade, free of charge, which can either be a domain registration or domain mapping.

    If you're mapping an existing domain, make sure that you're following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    You won't be charged for the mapping during checkout.

    which can either be a domain registration or domain mapping.

    Thanks for clarifying that for me too.

  5. You're welcome!

  6. Thanks! I think the key is not being charged for the mapping--it looked like I would be. I am waiting for the name server change to take effect.

  7. You're welcome!

  8. When I go through the whole process it really looks like it's going to charge me. I go through the whole PayPal process. It looks like I should cancel the upgrade and redo it, perhaps?

  9. Just to be sure, are you adding it to http://thebookpsychologists.wordpress.com/ where you have purchased the bundle?

    If so, and you don't see that your total is $0 upon checkout, you might want to try cancelling and refunding the bundle then doing it again, but I don't see any reason for why that wouldn't work.

  10. Okay, that was the problem. Sorry about that! I just went to the main dashboard which I suppose was more associated with my first account than that one? However it worked, when I went to the correct site, and then picked the dashboard from there it had the correct option.

  11. Excellent, glad to hear! :)
