Setting up a web store and using domain name
Hello. I currently have a free blog here but this is what I’m trying to do. My business s splitting Into two separate categories. I wish to purchase my domain name as long as my content will transfer over. I also want to be able to link a store which will carry different products and have shopping carts and SKU. Is it best to do this here or set up a separate web hosted store then just provide the info here.
There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com and it’s for blogs on their own domains. This is the homepage for the WordAds program: http://www.wordads.co/
Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds, no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products 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 and there is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that.
If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Refer to > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
