How to implement 'Payment Processing...Please Wait' page?

We are processing payments from our customers and we would like to implement a splash page that the customer is taken to whilst their payment is being processed.

What is the best way to implement this.

At the moment we present two buttons (as images) to our customer, 'I Agree' and 'Cancel'.  If the customer clicks 'I Agree' there is a link to page called v_ps.jsp  which has

<% if (validated)
       - process payment
       - redirect for correction

       if (payment successful)
         redirect to confirmation page
         redirect to error page


with no <body>.

But whilst the user is waiting for the validation and the payment processing, they stay on the  same page as they clicked the 'I Agree' button.  How do I implement a temporary page.
