how to set up estore
trying to set up e store. not apparent if I can do this with free blog, or with upgrade to pro.
The blog I need help with is evelynscrackers.wordpress.com.
No, we cannot have a store on WordPress.com. The pro upgrade still means you are hosted here on wp.com.
E-commerce isn’t possible here at WordPress.com.
If you require e-commerce/shopping cart functionality, you might be interested in a self-hosted (WordPress.org) installation. There are no restrictions on e-commerce if you set up a self-hosted WordPress.org blog instead of a WordPress.com blog, but there are some added responsibilities.
We have hosting recommendations at the following link if you are interested.
I have a domain name through godaddy that I am forwarding the wordpress/blogspot to so it comes through as a regular .com.
Am I already self hosting? but storing backups etc.
No. You are not self-hosting. You are mapping your domain name to your site hosted on WordPress.com.
The domain mapping is like a “transporter” bringing your readers to the site you have hosted on WordPress.com, so you are still restricted to the TOS here.
If you want an e-store, then you will have to find a company to host your site, you can use your domain name, and you can use WordPress.ORG software to make it function.
