On a jsp paysite, I have checked that the site using running SSL as it's https and I have checked the certificate information, is there anything else I can check security wise before makign a payment, I'm talking what I can test from the jsp site itself.

Sounds good. Are you going to ask the user for credit card information?

From a security standpoint, you look good. Make sure that you do not store the credit card number. You can store username/ password in an encrypted format (use one-way hashing for the password). Also make sure you use some clustering/ fault tolerant architecture to ensure your system is highly available. There isn't really much info in your question, so I'm not sure what server you are using. Here is a guide on Tomcat clustering:
