anyone have advice on how you work this scenario?
user comes to my company ecommerce site, they are ready to buy (off of my shopping cart engine) , they paypal it, Paypal IPN and my server verify payment, but now how do I keep state on their shopping cart page showing their payment is completed and so I can redirect them to their "final" shopping page?

thanks in advance

Create an ID and send it through PayPal as "item_number" or if you're absolutely certain it will be unique, as "invoice". It will be returned to you in the IPN so you can match back.
