I have a class: Basket.cs and i created a property for it like this:

public ArrayList basketPayments
        {
            get;
            set;
        }

In my page1.aspx, I want to populate this arraylist so I did this:

 Basket.PaymentMethod = card;
 Basket.basketPayments.Add(card);

but the second like Basket.basketPayments.Add(card);  gives me object null error. How can I use it??

or on the constructor for your basket class add
basketPayments=new ArrayList();

It has not been initialized. So, your first get returns the null.

In the class that contains this, add a member:
private ArrayList mBasketPayments = null;

Then change the getter and setter as:

public ArrayList basketPayments
{
      get
     {
           if (mBasketPayments == null)
                mBasketPayments = new ArratList(10);
           return mBasketPayments;
     }
     set { mBasketPayments = value; }
}
