    connecting to affiliate pay pal

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

  2. Are you the author of the ebooks?
    If so, read this small exception to the no affiliate marketing and affiliate links policy in italics below:

    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category. http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/

    There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com and it’s for blogs on their own domains. Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds http://www.wordads.co/ 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. Paid content and/or sponsored content is not allowed.

    On free hosted WordPress.com blog we can use a contact form and/or a PayPal donation button for sale of only products or services created or provided by ourselves.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase from WordPress.com that changes any of that. If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising, affiliate links, paid or sponsored content you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org

    Thank You!!! Yes, I am the author of the ebooks related to topics of interest for staff/parents in Early Childhood Education. Not gonna be a high volume venture, nor am I interested in advertising or selling for anyone else. Looks like I fall into this exception category. I'm just so sorry it took me so very long to get to this information. I really, really appreciate you and will get busy with the info you have so kindly given me. Stay tuned, Teaching Moments, LLC may be up and running in toto soon.
    Thanks again so very much!

    My books will contain a password so that they cannot be accessed until purchase. Any ideas on how to embed this all into the contact form/thank you page? Is that a paypal function or a wordpress function?
