domain purchase

    I wonder how I can afford to buy my domain, because I have no credit card. Would you like to know if I can do it by bank transfer?

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

  2. I'm sorry but credit cards and PayPal are the methods of payment here.

  3. Have a question. If I upgrade to purchase my own domain for my current wordpress blog... will it affect all my affiliate team members in my network who have already been visiting my current blog? What I mean is do I need to inform everyone of my new domain or does it automatically re-direct?

    Hope to hear from Admin support or any experienced member here.

    Thanks.

  4. @sckn011, when you buy a domain, your blog still remains at: http://sfi082011.wordpress.com but your readers can type either http://www.example.com or example.com or sfi082011.wordpress.com

    So they have many ways to access your blog. you don't lose anything.

    @pedrobrandnoticia
    You can pay by paypal and you can create a free paypal account and register your bank details with them. They will then make the payment for you to WordPress.

    Good luck.
