How to create a simple payment form using HTML and CSS

Payment forms are an important part of e-commerce platforms. They are used by customers to make payments for goods and services bought online. I am showing how to create a simple payment form using HTML and CSS. We will start off by creating an HTML file that will form the structure of the payment form. After that, we will use Cascading Stylesheet (CSS) to style the payment form. Basically, this simple payment form is created using HTML and CSS. In order to make payments, it will need to be linked to the backend part of the website.

HTML code

Open your code editor and create a new HTML file. The HTML webpage is divided into a head tag that contains the title, meta section, and links to the stylesheet and font awesome CDN and the body which has the form.

Font awesome is a platform with the most popular icons that are used in Web Development. To access the icons, visit the font awesome website, search the icons you need then copy and paste the code on top of the icon into your HTML code. After that, search for font awesome CDN to connect the icons to the website and link it in the head section of the HTML file.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <title>Payment form</title>
  <link href="" rel="stylesheet">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
    
</head>
