+ Jason's Comments

This is an easier option than installing a full cart system.
If you don’t need catalog, stock control and sales reporting.
If you only need PayPal payment gateway with these options:
– Currency and language settings
– add to cart buttons (transfers to PayPal website)
– product name
– product sku
– product extra info (customer input field)
– product weight
– product price
– shipping cost
– additional item shipping cost
– check out / view cart button (transfers to PayPal website).

Note: this plugin has not been updated in a while (see above).
I also recommend WordPress Simple PayPal Shopping Cart plugin which includes an on site cart.
