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?

Thanks for posting your question about the <strong>shared SSL</strong>. 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:
<a href=""></a>

To use the Shared SSL on the server to go over HTTPS and access the same image:
<a href=""></a>

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:

<a href="">Shared SSL</a>

I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
