Is a store page possible without an expensive Theme?

  1. Hello,

    I am taking a class where I need to design a website through WordPress. We were able to do any type of website we wanted. I chose a restaurant and I would like to have a shop page. I do not want to purchase an expensive theme since I will be finished with the class soon, is there a way to make a simple store without spending any money?

    It does not have to be completely efficient I would just like to be able to have product images with their prices below and a link to a description page for each product. I would like to have about 30 items hopefully categorized on different pages.

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

  2. NO reselling anything made by anyone else is allowed on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.

    WordPress.com blogs cannot be equipped for ecommerce transactions with shopping carts and no blogger initiated advertising or paid or sponsored content is allowed. The only things you can sell on WP.com blogs are products that you, yourself create and/or services that you personally provide. For an online store with a shopping cart you need an independently hosted blog using WordPress.ORG software.

    For selling only your own creations and/or only service you personally provide on a free hosted WordPress.com blog see http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

    If and only if you are marketing only what you create and you already have a online shop with a shopping cart somewhere else online you can create a custom menu and add a custom link to it.
