PayPal has a new feature that lets you edit custom page styles to make your business/shopping cart checkout page look more like your web site. You can enter a link to an image of your logo, but they recommend it be an image hosted on a secure(https)server.
It may not be a requirement, but since they stated it:

Is there a way to have a logo on my web site but make it use an https link for displaying by PayPal?

Hi CPL,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. You can use the shared SSL in your image paths. Here's how:

Your logo in WordPress is stored here which is NOT over HTTPS:
http://www.xdeskpublishing.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/xdp-logo3.png

To use the Shared SSL on the server to go over HTTPS and access the same image:
https://secure112.inmotionhosting.com/~xdeskp5/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/xdp-logo3.png

As you can see in the example, the same image is displayed, one over HTTP and one over HTTPS. Here's an article explaining the shared SSL in more detail:

Thanks!
