    No, we cannot have a store on The pro upgrade still means you are hosted here on :

    E-commerce isn’t possible here at

    If you require e-commerce/shopping cart functionality, you might be interested in a self-hosted ( installation. There are no restrictions on e-commerce if you set up a self-hosted blog instead of a 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

    The domain mapping is like a “transporter” bringing your readers to the site you have hosted on, 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.
