How to place an order and payment form for products?

  1. I am working on a wordpress.com free blog/website which would be showcasing the books and writings of an author, where the author would also like to be able to sell their books through the site.....how can this be done? Can one place some kind of order form on the site, along with a payment button like Paypal, etc.?? I would appreciate any help with this! Thank you!

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

  2. That's a no go as we cannot advertise or sell any products we do not personally create or sell services we do not personally provide on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. 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
    Refer to > http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

    There is no upgrade, aside from a VIP hosting upgrade http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ that you can purchase that allows blogger initiated advertising on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. You will have to hire a web host and set up your own WordPress.org install to run your own advertising.

    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.
