Purchase / PayPal Option on my blog?

  1. How do I sell a product on my blog? How do I input a "Purchase Product" option on my blog?

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

  2. How do I sell a product on my blog? How do I input a "Purchase Product" option on my blog?

  3. You are not allowed to sell any product you did not personally create or any service your do not personally provide on a free hosted WordPress.com blog.

  4. Our free hosted WordPress.com blogs cannot be equipped for eCommerce transactions.

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install any plugins.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes anything at all stated here http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    FTP access, plugins and third party themes are available only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate. if you require plugins, a shopping cart, etc. then you must hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install. http://wordpress.org/ Then you can move your content from the free hosted WordPress.com blog into the WordPress.org install. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

  5. Thank you VERY much:)!

  6. If you are referring only to products you did personally create or any service you do personally provide you can post a PayPal button and/or use a contact form.

    If your have a shopping cart set up on an external site you can create a custom menu http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/ and add a custom link to it. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-custom-links
