    Hey guys can you have a shopping cart on your site? If so, how do you do that? I've searched thru the topics but can't seem to see much on that? Cheers

    The blog I need help with is elizabethwalton2780.wordpress.com.

  2. No, not at WordPress.COM. You can with an externally hosted blog from WordPress.ORG though. WP.com blogs are optimized for personal and professional blogging, not ecommerce.

  3. Come to think of it, what you can do is get a web shop somewhere else, like Etsy or somewhere, and link to it in a custom header, the way I've done with CoverItLive here:

    hey great idea - as always, thanks again for your help. i havent used .org - is it similar to here????

  5. Following up on this. No blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work 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.

    Types of blogs allowed and not allowed

    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/
