E-Comm catalog conversion

    I would like to use my companies printed catalog as our online catalog. I want to use the PDF version of the pages and allow a visitor to view the pages and click on the pictures of the individual products to purchase them and learn. I will need to hire a programmer to create “buttons” (? thats the best way I can describe it, surely thats the wrong term but I hope it makes my idea clear) on the converted PDF pages as well as organize them and create a seamless transition from the normal section of our website to our online catalog. I already have our website created and I have the shopping cart setup through authorize.net.
    What I would appreciate advice on is if there is a certain tool or format currently available to do this kind of job, if not what direction would be good for me to go towards to achieve the end result I’m after. I want to avoid having pages that require more than a 3G connection to load in a few seconds. and obviously I want to be mobile device efficient.
    I would greatly appreciate and feedback you may have to give.



    In a nutshell 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

    The advertising exceptions noted in support documentation are for high traffic blogs that qualify for and are accepted into the Ad Control program, and for extremely high traffic blogs that qualify and are accepted into the paid VIP hosting program.

    The exceptions noted in support documentation with regard to affiliate links are found here:

    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/
