My question is how do i carry out the actual transaction after this? As in how am i suppose to make it such that the money goes from the customers account to the business's?

Hi Mogammad! Your payment processing service should have some documentation for hooking up your website to its API. That would be the best place to start. My opinion. -- Janning.


Hi , when you mentioned a payment processing service, are you referring to a payment gateway? and could you elaborate on what you mean by documentation? Thank you for replying


Hi Mogammad, Good question! I think this article is pretty useful for getting the lay of the land in that area: I like it mostly because handling that type of information is a big responsibility and it talks about PCI compliance. Regarding what documentation is: particularly the specifications part. It's generally a good practice to reference the specifications of a software (or language) to see what the engineers intended, then Google any problems you run into that deviate from the documentation. I hope this helps! :)
