Mark items Sold after PayPal payment

Mark items Sold after PayPal payment

What is the best route to take if items need to be marked sold after a PayPal payment is complete?
These are one of a kind items, so inventory is always just one of each item.
Right now, the database has a column for each item that is called "Status". It's either "Available" or "Sold".

Currently the user uses a "Buy Now" button, fills out their information, goes to PayPal and pays. The problem is that some items end up being purchased more than once and that needs to be addressed.

Ideally, they would pay at PayPal and the item would be marked "Pending" followed by "Sold" once the payment was confirmed.

I'm confused about the process. Is PayPal Standard ok or do they need Pro.
