It looks to me like PayPal Standard only provides HTML code that you can
copy and paste onto your website to provide "Buy now with PayPal"

For a fuller purchase experience, such as a shopping cart, you would
need PayPal Express Checkout, which can be integrated via the PaypalExpress.pm
module. You can use it in conjunction with a merchant account, so you
can accept credit cards as well, or standalone to just accept PayPal.

More info on PayPal Express Checkout:

To use PayPal's own merchant account, you would sign up for PayPal
Payments Pro, and use the PayflowPro.pm module. (I think PayPal
rebranded their PayflowPro service as PayPal Payments Pro.)
PayflowPro.pm supports credit cards, as well as PayPal payments.
