I have a form that calls a function that inserts the fields in a database.

I can also POST that information to a payment processing company's page.

How can I do both? (and in that order...?)

Please post the code that shows your progress on this question.

Also, please see the comment in this question.  I think it would be good to explain what happened there.

As Ray write better to post the progress code:
<?php
if(isset($_POST['yoursubmit'])){
//Fetch all data from form like
$fname=$_POST['fname']; //assume you are using fristname
$lname=$_POST['lname'];
//call here the	insert function
//if insert is success post values to the payment process as you can see the values are in variables now
	
}

Open in new window

Submit your form to your database function, and from that function make a new POST request to the Payment Gateway. Here's an idea on how to POST from PHP:
