    Hello all, I have previously been using serif software and Ipage hosting but haven’t been a fan. I am looking to redo my site in wordpress but am unsure which monthly option would be most suited.
    I run an internet order gardens nursery so am after an ecommerce site and use primarily paypal to take payments.
    I appreciate this is more than a basic site however I am somewhat on a budget.
    any advice would be great
    thankyou

    Hello,
    There are two option to use wordpress

    1. You could go with Premium Plan at http://www.wordpress.com it will meet your needs.
    you dont need to manage hosting. Just install the theme & necessary plugin and you are good to go!

    2. If you have your own Hosting at ipage then ,
    you can download the and install wordpress free from wordpress.org.
    Below is the link of detailed step to install wordpress

    Thanks

    Based purely on the information you provided, I would go with the WordPress.org version. I am fairly sure that iPage has a 1-click installer that will make installing WordPress very easy.

    Hi,

    As @mandraagora mentioned, Almost all hosting services are giving 1-click installer to make it easy to install a fresh WordPress copy on your domain. You can look into the following URL for the iPage specifically. The article is a bit of an overkill with respect to the text but that can help.

    As you have mentioned managing eStore online. The best available option is the WooCommerce plugin which you can install free after having a fresh WordPress copy. To get payments online you have to go through their extensions which you can see on the following URL.

    https://woocommerce.com/product-category/woocommerce-extensions/payment-gateways/

    There is a learning curve involved in configuring and managing The WooCommerce but their documentation makes it pretty easy for new users.

    I hope that helps.
