The first option is Buy Now. This button allows a visitor to purchase a product directly from the website. Select the buy now button and place it in the desired location. 

To activate and connect the button to a PayPal account, click on PayPal Account and enter the email address associated with your PayPal account. This email address will automatically associate itself with all the PayPal buttons added to the site. You will only need to enter once.

As far as I can tell there is no inventory control on these buttons. Not something you want to use if you have limited inventory

If you need advanced features like inventory tracking, then you would want to upgrade to add eCommerce to your site.
