Possible to use wordpress.com for e-commerce site?

  1. Is it possible to create an e-commerce site using wordpress.com
    I purchased the hosting for $100 yesterday for mysacredashes. I am interested in creating an e-commerce site and a homepage using marketpress or woo-commerce, and I am concerned that I won't be able to with wordpress.com. I chose wordpress.com because I want the ability to upload videos, and from what I understand, that is not possible with wordpress.org.

    I appreciate any help with this!

    Thank you

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

  2. Hi,

    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:

    As for Videos, you can use VideoPress with a self-hosted site. Have a look here for more information.

    I also see that you cancelled the bundle yesterday, so if you need anything else, please let me know.
