Nothing in GPL prevents commercial use, and it doesn't limit your ability to issue other licenses later. It does not limit the author, only the user.

But you have to make sure that all patches you receive are followed by a written statements where the ownership is transferred to you. The patches makes it a derived work, and then you need all the authors of that derived work to agree on an additional license.

How hard is it to change later?

You cannot revoke GPL for released code, but you can stop releasing new versions under GPL.
