Selling Items With Free/Paid Blog

  1. Hello and thanks in advance for any and all help!

    My question is, would it be possible to sell my own items on my blog? I know there's no store feature, but I could do it manually and bill people with paypal or something to that extent. So basically I would have pages with my products, and people could contact me and place their order on which item(s) they would like to purchase. Everything else would be handled through email and paypal. Would this comply with WordPress policies? Would I have to upgrade in order to do this? Or can I just use the free version? Also my products would be my own creations (e.g. paintings).

    Thanks!

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

  2. Yes you can sell your own creations but do be aware that WordPress.com blogs cannot be equiped for ecommerce. You can use a PayPal button and a contact form and that's it. There is no shopping cart ability here.

    If you do require an ecommerce site 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/

  5. You're welcome and best wishes whatever you decide to do. :)
