PayPal Standard

I've searched the forum and I can't believe nobody else seems to have used PayPal Standard?

So can I use PayPal Standard as I have forever, although with other plugins?

Is my only choice PayPal Express?

Does that mean I lose the advantage of allowing a customer to pay via credit card or PayaPal.

I guess I assumed that every eCart vendor handles the basics?

Help?

Thanks,
John...
