As far as the plugin goes, it’s simple to setup, easy to use and customizable. You can add a base price for shipping/handling as well as per item and has several other variants which can be configured.
The problem, which was a deal-breaker for me was the way tax works. Tax has to be added via PayPal settings and in turn, tax get’s applied to shipping. The plugin will breakout product price and shipping as separate items but Paypal adds tax to the total amount, rather than just the items purchased. I didn’t feel right about charging customers tax on shipping so I had to abandon it.
Sellers that don’t need accurate taxable settings or those selling digital assets would likely benefit most from the plugin.
It's really wonderful and easy to use So give him a 5 star
This is by far the best free WP PayPal plugin around, and it's so easy to use. Thank you!
This plugin is exactly what I was looking for. It is a very effective way to implement payment via PayPal. And it is simple enough to set up, that anyone with basic PC skills can readily utilize it. Technical support was very quick to respond when I discovered a minor problem with the latest update. A new update which resolved the problem was released after just one business day. You couldn't ask for a better tool or better support.
I've been looking for this for years. Whenever i try to set up Paypal buttons they take several trys. And when I try to learn a shopping cart I give up. And they incur monthly charges. For a new commerce site or a non-profit reservations system, they are overkill.
And there is a premium version so as your needs grow, you can upgrade.
WordPress Simple Paypal Shopping Cart is an easy way to add a small shopping cart to your website. The plus that makes this plugin so great is the amount of online documentation and videos that show how to use it. I also had a question and I received an email within the next day.
I highly recommend this plugin.

I think Simple PayPal Shopping Cart is the best e-commerce plugin for my website. Simple setup, quick checkout, no conflict with other plugins and It works very well with my chosen payment method - PayPal. Thanks to the developers for this amazing free plugin. Keep up the good work!
The user can change the price of items in the html, (F12) on the paypal button in the page 'checkout' and he can change the value 'amount' to '0'. After the paypal API took that value... and charge the wrong price...
I think it's a big problem if nobody take care to double check the bills.
v 4.1.3 shopping cart widget does NOT work with WP 4.3. I have to use another plugin widget to display the cart in the sidebar.
Works great even on a site with hundreds of items!
