WordPress.com is the world’s most popular platform for building blogs and websites with millions of users globally, but previously there has been no way to add an online store and sell goods from these sites. That is, until today. Ecwid is very excited to announce that starting today, WordPress.com’s Business users can add Ecwid stores seamlessly to their hosted blogs and start selling online! Ecwid has been a leading e-commerce solution for self-hosted WordPress.org users for years, and now is available as an integrated plugin option to users of WordPress.com hosted version as well.
