confirm.php, ipn, express checkout

Thank you all for your input. Still not sure what direction to go in with this check out process. Which is the most reliable for the customer and store owner. IPN, express or auto return. If I go with IPN this is where I get stuck, I have the IPN script which updates the db's that pp has set up. Still stuck on how the client returns to the site after they click pay on paypal, and how the confirm.php kicks in to update the db tables. If I can figure out how to have the client return to the site (using IPN) and have a message that they will be notified when payment is approved, then how are the db tables updated, does the store owner have to update the db tables once payment is approved? Is express check out accurate? And if so, does return the client back to the site, with either the success or failure message.
Thank you
