Pay with PayPal

The Pay with PayPal button is available on the WordPress.com Premium plan and higher. The Pay with PayPal button allows you to accept credit card payments for physical products, digital goods, services, donations, or support of your work. You can find a how-to video, as well as detailed instructions on the Pay with PayPal support guide.

The Payments button lets you collect recurring revenue from your site visitors for subscriptions, memberships, and donations. When a visitor signs up, you’ll start receiving regular payments from them — either monthly or yearly — creating predictable earnings for your blog or website. Learn more about Payments.

Premium Content Block

The Premium Content block allows you to create monthly or yearly subscription options to share select content with those who pay for it – text, images, videos, or any other type of content. Only subscribers paying you monthly or a yearly fee will be able to see the content. Learn more about Premium Content Block.

For those without a Business or Premium plan, you can add a PayPal button to accept payments through PayPal. You can find more information about how this works at the PayPal support guide.

Business Plan Options

In addition to the Store functionality, WordPress.com Business plan subscribers have the ability to add third-party plugins and themes, which enables a wide variety of eCommerce solutions other than these. If you have complex eCommerce needs, the WordPress.com Business plan will work for you.
