PHP & Mysql & Paypal?!

Okay firstly let me explain what Im trying to do.
I am setting up a site to sell custom handmade cards. A user will visit my site, and create a custom card with a simple form (theme, colours, recipient, message/blank etc etc). They then can add this card to a cart - then either checkout or add more cards etc.
When they checkout I need paypal to retrieve the right price and maybe details about their card? Then obviously process the payment and then I need to be able to show that that card has been payed for on my site -This is my problem.

I can create a card with details passed to paypal and get them to pay for it but I cannot then save this card to the database showing that it has been payed for. If you get what I mean?
Because obviously if you click checkout, then PHP saves to the DB then paypal processes payment (someone could "buy" a card without paying. It needs to save to the db after payment is processed, ie paypal needs to return some date.

Anyone know how or any suggestions?

Paypal won't fetch anything from your site, you have to send the details to Paypal. Paypal won't provide you with the CC details, but it'll return an Invoice No. & Transaction ID

Surely paypal will be able to return some variables to the "thankyou/success" page?

And I dont need the CC details just the details of the card (colour, theme, size etc)
