Should I use WordPress to make a site if I want to have a PayPal shopping cart?

Question by momochi: Should I use WordPress to make a site if I want to have a PayPal shopping cart?
I’ve heard from some that because WordPress wasn’t made for shopping carts, it can have issues, but from others I hear it’s a simple matter of copy & paste. I tried adding a test button on one of my WordPress sites but it didn’t work. Should I figure out how to make it work on WordPress, or just make an HTML/CSS site?

WordPress is mainly for like blogging. To make a more efficient website make it out in HTML/CSS. The reason being is that the paypal shopping card is done in HTML code.

    WordPress is not just a great solution for blogging, but for shopping carts too! In only a few minutes, you can set up a PayPal shopping cart using a free WordPress plugin called “WP Simple Paypal Shopping Cart”, which you can view and download at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-simple-paypal-shopping-cart. This plugin is by far the easiest PayPal shopping cart plugin to use. Enjoy!
