You don't need to use IPN. I have a site that uses PayPal to purchase gift 
certificates. On the page where the "Paypal" button is, I store the 
variables I will need in Session variable and set the "Paypal Success URL" 
to my success PHP page. When Paypal invokes my page, I get everything I 
need from the Session variables.  Works very well.
