Do this

Click “Apearance” > “Themes” > “Install Themes” > “Upload” and then it should let you select a file to upload, then you’ll need to upload the .zip file that you’ve downloaded from themeforest.

(This will all be in your admin dashboard of Wordpress.)

Unfortunately, his problem is that he’s using WordPress.com. Hence, it’s impossible to use a custom theme from here and his only option if he were to use the theme that he has just bought is to migrate his WordPress to a self-hosted solution.

You may get more information here : http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

Basically you will have to backup your current WP database, install a new WP in the new host and import this database into the new website.
