  3. There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com and it’s for blogs on their own domains. This is the homepage for the WordAds program: http://www.wordads.co/ There you will find the application page as well as FAQs.

    Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds, no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed on free hosted wordpress.com blogs. E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.com

    http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/affiliate-links/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/suspended-blogs/

    If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Refer to > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  4. Short answer: only if you, yourself, made the jewelry. If you're just selling something someone else has made, no.

  5. Is it possible to have item pictures and prices but no purchasing transaction done from wordpress?
    Thanks

  6. Got it, Many thanks to all!

  7. You're welcome.

  8. Hi raincoaster, that is the answer I needed to read. Is there something in writing in the TOS or somewhere that officially states that?

  9. Yes, there are all kinds of staff posts in the forum that say that. I expect it's in the ToS and also on the page about Types of Blogs.

  10. No, it's not specifically stated in the fascinating ToS or the Types of Blogs.... I'll search for the staff posts then. Thanks a lot.

  11. While you can sell your work on your blog, no blogger initiated advertising, retailing, or reselling of work created or services provided by other people is allowed on WordPress.com.

    This link will give you instructions for using a Paypal button on your blog:

    If you require e-commerce/shopping cart functionality beyond this, you might be interested in a self-hosted (WordPress.org) installation. There are no restrictions on e-commerce if you set up a self-hosted WordPress.org blog instead of a WordPress.com blog, but there are some added responsibilities.

    Please see this link to learn about the differences:

    We have hosting recommendations at the following link if you are interested:

  12. Thanks a lot, mac.

    I was just trying to help a fellow blogger that wants to show a portfolio of handcrafts (made by her) and wasn't sure whether showing the prices of the pieces would be allowed by WP.

    I appreciate your reply and interest.

    BTW, WP.com is as close to perfection as something of its kind can be. I'd never switch to .org! Thanks again.

  13. PS: I think she will be very happy to know about the Pay Pal option... kind of an extra bonus. :-)

  14. You're welcome!
