I'm in the process of Webstore's discovery. I have read the ecommerce configuration tutorial and some PayPal tutorials like the "Name-Value Pair API
Developer Guide". I have set the following web.config vars for testmode on my localhost development machine.
<add key="Site1-PaymentGatewayUseTestMode" value="true" />
<add key="Site1-PayPalUsePayPalStandard" value="true" />
<add key="Site1-PayPalSandboxAPIUsername" value="sdk-three_api1.sdk.com" />
<add key="Site1-PayPalSandboxAPIPassword" value="QFZCWN5HZM8VBG7Q" />
<add key="Site1-PayPalSandboxAPISignature" value="A-IzJhZZjhg29XQ2qnhapuwxIDzyAZQ92FRP5dqBzVesOkzbdUONzmOU" />
The values were taked from the PayPal "Name-Value Pair API Developer Guide" tutorial as examples there.
My first goal is to enable the "Proceed to checkout" link in the Cart section. I currently get the "Continue Shopping" link only. Which steps must I perform in order to reach my goal?
Currently I have not preferences for any Paypal payment alternative, just to learn mojoPortal implemented alternatives and to decide later which one is best for my needs. I have installed mojo 18.104.22.168.b release.
I appreciate suggestions or indeep help on how to get the webstore full enable. I have not experience with Paypal, so I appreciate suggestions on this also.

It is very difficult to test PayPal, they have a very complicated test sandbox. It is easier to use it on a real production site than it is to test it. In either case you have to do configuration of your paypal account.
Hope it helps,
currently I have a simple question: The "Proceed to Checkout" link is not visible in my testsite, so, How could I get it visible? Why it is not visible by default?
You can't proceed to checkout unless at least one of the payment solutions is configured. The easiest one to test is Authorize.net, you can get a test account from them and then you can test the checkout process. I have my test account configured on storedemo.mojportal.com, but notice I cannot demo PayPal using their sandbox because in order for a user to test it he would have to login to my sandbox account.
