I am learning that Wordpress.com does not support e-commerce payments such as Shopify buy now button. Can I switch to wordpress.org through wealthy affiliate? How would I go about switching. I sell physical products so wordpress.com is not going to be beneficial for me.

Have you heard about WooCommerce? It is an eCommerce plugin on WordPress for you to sell/promote products.

Yes I have. I just didn’t want to install any unnecessary plug ins and I was very confused what step to take next honestly. I will definitely look into that and adding it to my plug ins. Thank you so much for your help.

wordpress . com is a platform like wa .. a hosting platform...
wordpress . org creates the program that is loaded onto your website to create your pages and posts ...keeping everything together...
what you can do is to add plugins for payments like stripe or paypal to your website here
or add woocommerce which integrates the payment modules and can become a shop type interface...
good lcuk

Okay perfect. I guess I was a little confused as to the difference in Wordpress.com and org. I knew WA was the hosting but I’m still figuring out all the rest. It’s a lot. However, I am getting more and more knowledge on the subject everyday. Thank you for your help.

no worries Brittany ...
there is a lot to take in at the start, but it does get easier as you move along the training....
i think wordpress org are regretting not stopping the other wordpress taking their name and using the com for the hosting site...
but it's happened...and they can't change it...
have fun

What is your plan? Are you going to use WA for hosting?
WA hosting allows you to sell your own products by installing the Woocommerce plugin to your domain website.

WA installs WordPress for us on our websites so we don't need to. That way we do everything wordpress from our websites.including plugins that will do the features we want on our websites.

So that is how you can install WooCommerce plugin on your website for free from WA Wordpress Backoffice.
