New: WordPress.com Finally Allows to Upload Any Plugin or Theme

New announcement
01.06.2017

One of the biggest pain points for WordPress.com users is the restriction of plugins. And it seems that they are starting to listen.

Good news, bloggers! WordPress.com has announced that from today they are allowing to upload any plugins or themes to the owners of their Business plan.

This means that you can now use a range of tools for SEO, email marketing, or e-commerce – the popular ones being Yoast, MailChimp or WooCommerce.

Here’s their email:

Over the years, many of you have told us that in order to build the site of your dreams, you need the ability to install themes and plugins. Well, as of today, you can!

You can now choose from a whole universe of themes and plugins and easily add them to your existing WordPress.com site.

Already have a WordPress theme? No problem.

Looking to launch an email newsletter, try out popular search engine optimization tools, or build an online store? Check, check, and check. You now have access to thousands of third-party plugins like:
MailChimp
Yoast
WooCommerce
and many more!

These features are now available in the WordPress.com Business plan.

The prices of their plans:

  • the Free plan £0
  • the Premium Plan £7.08 / month
  • the Business Plan costs £20.83 / month

You can find more details about their plans here.

This is great, isn’t it? It’s just a shame, that’s it’s not yet for all blogs and bloggers…

  1. This is great news for Business plan users, but I am in a lower plan. Do you happen to have a blog or links to a blog on what makes their business plan worth purchasing for self hosting plans? It seems so expensive compared the self hosted sites out there. If you have it what makes you recommend it?
    Thanks for the share

  2. Thanks for your comment! Indeed it is good news for Business plan users. I was really hoping they’d do it for all – would be like early Christmas. I’m currently using a Premium plan (boooo, I’m not getting plugins) – if I wanted to upgrade they’d give a good discount. However, I’m not yet convinced, as many bloggers do still say it’s better to use the .org version (and cheaper). I don’t have an article yet – but I’m working on it, as I’ve now been using the .com version for a short while now, so can write my thoughts down as a new user.

    Which plan are you using?
