Setup

This is what happens when your customer or client makes a purchase or payment on your website.

Step 1. The customer adds items to their basket and goes to the checkout.
Step 2. The customer selects the Adyen payment option

and is redirected to the Adyen servers:

Step 3. Adyen put the transaction through the card check schemes and send it to the card issuer for fraud checks (i.e., 3D Secure).
Step 4. The Transaction Successful message is displayed to your customer so they know their payment has gone through.
Step 5. The transaction is complete, in a matter of seconds, they are redirected back to your website.
