Is it ok to sell my book direct from my blog which is about the book?

  1. I am looking for a way to sell my book to people overseas, using paypal and would like to check if its ok to do it directly from my wordpress blog as i have noticed they do have a paypal feature. My blog (which i love btw) is about my books. Thank you

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

  2. yea i think tht should work!

  3. We can't answer without a link to the blog, actually. The way to do it depends on the blog.

  4. My friend looked it up and it seems you can thanks for the help

  5. Here at WordPress.com our blogs cannot be equipped for ecommerce transactions. We can post an unencrypted PayPal donation button so I hope your friend was clear about that. http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

    It's always best to run these kind of questions by staff for the official go ahead...
    contact link http://support.wordpress.com/contact

    My suggestion if Staff gives the okay to sell to use a third party site and link to the store site via your blog because like timethief, said the donation button is not encrypted which is important when there is money involved as well as protection reasons for the consumer buying the book...
