Depends on what kind of buttons you mean.

I too discovered to my chagrin that the plain old "Buy Now" or Cart
Upload buttons will *not* take the customer to any kind of nice mobile
experience. It baffles me why PayPal won't make this mobile friendly.

I believe that Express Checkout - the more fully integrated method -
*is* mobile friendly. But not the easy-peasy Buy Now buttons.
