The payment process is typically composed of the following steps:
The online shop displays a list of available payment methods which are enabled for this online shop.
Then the consumer selects one of these payment methods.
The online shop redirects the consumer to Wirecard Checkout Page hosted on the Wirecard Checkout Server.
Wirecard Checkout Page displays an input form for entering payment data such as credit card number, expiration date, etc. to the consumer, and/or redirects the consumer to the financial service provider.
The consumer enters the required sensitive payment data into this input form and commits the payment by clicking a relevant button.
Wirecard Checkout Page processes the payment and interacts directly with the consumer and the financial service provider.
Wirecard Checkout Page informs the online shop about the result of the payment.
Then the online shop stores the result of the payment and triggers a manual or automated shipping process to send the purchased items to the consumer.
The online shop verifies the received payment result and displays to the consumer an appropriate page containing information on the result of the payment process.
After returning to the online shop the consumer proceeds with browsing or shopping additional items in the shop.
