Dreamweaver Cart Feature Integration

Hi All,
I'm developing a site that I sells a few different phone products. When certain phones are selected a corresponding cable is selected from a database and must be added to a cart. These are the only two types of products that the site will sell. Is it necessary to use a cart site for these products or would it be better to have an "add to cart button" that adds the total to a field on the page and then allows Paypal to read this field and charge the appropiate amount? I could go ahead and purchase WebAssist's ecommerce Suite 3 for $300 but is it worth it for what I want to do?

it all depends upon your needs, if you explain your products well on the "Product" display page then you can have a Add to Cart button and redirect your visitors to paypal page (making sure visitors know they are buying Phone and the Cable).

if you want to buy a cart thats fine too, but like you said you are selling only one type of product then paypal add to cart button makes more sense and its easy, just be carefull with the product content.
