Help selling tickets to an event using PayPal

I'm throwing a party where guests are purchasing tickets in advance using PayPal. I have an account set up specifically for the event (and an email address for the event), and right now guests are emailing the email address and I'm sending them a money request through PayPal. I'd like to make this even easier (with less repetitive emailing for me) and have guests be able to purchase tickets without having to contact me first, through a "Buy Now" button for PayPal or something similar (I've poked around in the PayPal merchant services but I don't really understand if I can use the buttons etc. without my own website).
- The event is being publicized through Facebook and doesn't have its own website or anything like that
- The PayPal account is a 'Premiere' account
- I need guests to have the option of selecting how many tickets they're purchasing and specifying the names of the people they're for
- I need to be able to change the price of the tickets every week
PS -- Are tickets to a party (actually just a reservation on the guest list, there's nothing physical involved) a good or a service?
