I would like to take my blog to a business website with a shopping cart

  1. i have a website that i purchased domain name from godaddy, then transferred domain to network solutions & purchased web hosting, but i would like my website to be on wordpress with my blog as long as wordpress offers ecommerce/shopping cart
    Blog url: http://becomeunglud.wordpress.com/

  2. I’m afraid e-commerce isn’t currently possible here at WordPress.com as our free hosted blogs cannot be equipped for ecommerce transactions at this time. If you require e-commerce/shopping cart functionality, there are no restrictions if you setup a self-hosted WordPress.org blog instead of a free hosted WordPress.com blog. See here to learn the differences: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. thank you for your reply. i am willing to pay for site, just didn't know if i could do it through wordpress. i would love some information on actually contacting wordpress!? can't find email, or number anywhere?!

  4. This is a peer support forum. As Staff have over 31 million to support we Volunteers provide answers to the maojrity of all questions posted here and only flag threads that have issues we cannot resolve for Staff attention. Your issue is not one that requires Staff attention. I answered it accurately above. There is no upgrade you can purchase form WordPress.com that will allow you to have an ecommerce blogs with a shopping cart. WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separeate and if you want an ecommerce blog with a shopping cart then you have to hire a web host and get a free software install from wordpress.org.

  5. i have a webhost!! i want to link my blog to my website, so that it's all in 1 location, under the domain name, which i also own. (sorry i am a novice, and need some walking through the steps, which is why i wanted to talk to someone - i find it easier to ask direct questions as they come up - this has been very frustrating - building my own website) i know that i can't have ecommerce on my free blog, this i know, what i want to know is how to link my website, which i have a host for & hopefully incorporate it all into 1 space (was hoping i could do that w/wordpress) - now i'm not sure if you're misunderstanding me, or if i'm misunderstanding you, because i know other small, local business who have their website through wordpress (w/shopping carts!)

    There two very different kinds of WordPress. Only those who have wordpress.org installs can have shopping carts.
