Opening A Store?

  1. Hello.

    I was wondering, can I use my wordpress page to open a store. I want to put the items in my blog page. Is this allowed?

    Thank you.

  2. There's no direct way to open or use a store in a WP.com blog; you'd need to open a store on another site like Yahoo and then place a link to it in a widget. It might be allowed but you'd need to contact staff to check first; the FAQs say you can have a discreet link to your business in the sidebar so it might be okay, but you'd have to check to be sure.

    No advertising allowed on wordpress.com blogs http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/12/08/adsense/
    Also wordpress.com blogs cannot be used to drive traffic to 3rd party sites - see section 2, 5th bullet http://wordpress.com/tos/

    If you want a commercial blog then IMO your best course of action is to hire a web host and download the free software from http://wordpress.org
    The differences between the two are summarized in these threads:
