    Can I sell art on my free wordpress.com blog? I’m totally new to all this. So thanks for answers for dummies…..
    If yes, how do I set up my blog to do selling? If yes, are there any restrictions in this regard that I should know about as I sign/build up this, my first blog?
    If no, what can I do to quality to sell my art on my WordPress blog?
    Is there a youtube type tutorial site that will help me build my first WordPress website?
    Many thanks, folks!

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

    The good news is you can sell what you personally create but our blogs cannot be equipped for Ecommerce transactions. We can use a PayPal button http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/ or contact form http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/ to sell products and/or services we create. We can set up a shopping cart elsehwre online and create a custom menu on the blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/ with a cusom link to the shopping cart. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-custom-links

    You can sell YOUR art. You can’t sell anyone else’s. WP.com blogs are not optimized for ecommerce, but you can use the Paypal Buy It Now button via these instructions http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

    To learn WordPress, go to http://learn.wordpress.com. If you want tutorials on how to make money selling things on blogs, that’s the kind of advice you can expect to pay for.

    I can see them fine now. I open a number of threads and then go through them one by one. When I opened this one, your reply wasn’t there. Why does it matter?

    I wanted to be sure my comments were not in the spam filter.
