You don;t tell us your experience level.

Im not a complete newbie, I understand basic programming.

Anil, if you are doing this for a class project, or as a way to learn Python, then I applaud you! It will take time and be difficult but you will learn a lot.

However, if you are actually thinking about using this to process payments, please stop. Don't do that. Not because you're not smart enough but because none of us is smart enough. Companies have entire teams writing this sort of code and other teams reviewing the code. Even then, there are significant security risks.

Financial transaction code that has flaws can ruin people's lives. I've already had my card misused this year, it took me a week of effort to recover. That was much less than it would have been if we didn't have stringent controls in place.

Please code responsibly.
