While I was waiting for a *real* Zope commerce solution I cooked up
this simple PayPal shopping cart store:

* ImageTag_CorePatch (available here).
* Archetypes 1.2.3_final
* PIL (for ImageTag_CorePatch)

REPRESENTATION OF SUITABILITY IS MADE.
Simple store product, to implement a PayPal shopping cart store within
plone. You need to read PayPal's shopping cart instructions (a copy is
included in docs/shopping_cart.pdf). READ THIS DOCUMENT BEFORE DOING
Basically you create a PayPal Store and the parameter of interest there
is the view cart button code. You'll need to add that later by pasting
in the view cart code that PayPal gives you.
Then you create a PayPal Item for each item. You get a picture and a
description, and the paypal button code is pasted in. Basically you
should have a browser window open to paypal.com where you create the
item, with all of it's information. Then you get the code for the add
to cart button and you paste that into your plone object.
You can also use the single item code, same difference. If the store
doesn't have any view cart button code it won't show the button.
Also you don't have to have a store to use the Item. But it has a nice
view of your whole store (catalog). If you want to make it so people
can't add Items outside of the store, you need to uncheck implicitly
addable in the portal_types tool PayPal Item.
To add items you need to enable: Add portal content AND PayPal: Add
