Right now my biggest ecommerce operation runs off of a self-hosted Wordpress installation. I'm thinking of starting a new site focusing more on my books and entertainment side, live shows and so on. So I'd much rather use Wordpress.com - hosted - as it cuts down on maintenance tasks.
You can't sell directly from a Wordpress.com site, even with your own domain mapped to it. That's fine. But I'm thinking of having a second E-Junkie account with the store purely on E-Junkie. And simply to have a navigation button on the Wordpress.com site saying "STORE."
Maybe also link from blog posts to various products on the E-Junkie store.
Does anyone have any experience of doing something similar, using Wordpress.com? If so, any thoughts would be appreciated. I will contact Wordpress, but thought I'd see what people think here first.
