Is it possible to add a store?

  1. Hi there! I currently have a few free WordPress blogs, the main one is http://www.thezonemag.wordpress.com but this question isn't really for me. I am helping someone set up a blog for their business but they would also like to incorporate a store. Is it possible to add a store (with a paid upgrade I would assume) via WordPress? I haven't been able to find anything so I assume not but I wanted to ask before we gave up and went another route.

    Thanks!

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

  2. No I'm sorry but there is no paid upgrade for what you want at all. No upgrades change the fact that 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 on e-commerce 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. Hi TimeThief,

    Thanks for you advice.

    For the self-hosted WordPress.org option, is the eCommence store function built in?

    Thks & rgds,

  4. No, it's not built in but there are many options to add a store.

  5. Thanks!
