Most modern eCommerce applications will provide mobile-friendly versions of your store, and some will even provide a mobile app as an add-on, usually for an additional fee. Your PayPal Shopping Cart should work in either case, but it’s best to check with your host or eCommerce provider to verify. In addition, your PayPal Payment plan should include a card swiper to use for in-person mobile payments.
PayPal offers a PCI compliance solution, Payflow Link, which includes checkout templates that are hosted by PayPal, so you don’t have to handle the financial transaction.

PayPal Shopping Cart is a part of your eCommerce solution. It allows your customers to browse items, make multiple selections, see their total costs, and pay for the transaction.

At the time of this writing, they were 2.9% of the purchase price plus $0.30 per transaction for the first $3,000 in monthly transactions, 2.5% plus $0.30 per transaction for $3,000 to $10,000 in monthly transactions, and 2.2% plus $0.30 per transaction for everything else up to $100,000. Above that, you have to call for specific rates. Additional fees apply for international transactions and virtual terminal purchases.
