Posting Order Data and Payment Confirmation Process

This is my first time using eCart 4.5.2, php and MySQL, with a remote payment processing through Authorize.net. After running the Checkout Wizard, the pages are partly working up to the confirm page.

Once the confirm page is reached the data is posted to the orders and orderDetail tables. I still need to setup the confirmation email to the customer and post to an additional table. At this point the customer has not been directed to the payment gateway to remotely enter their financial payment information.

I seem to be missing the logic and would appreciate it someone could fill in the blanks?

1. Do I have to set up that form through my Authoriz.net account? I believe so.

2. Then the customer is returned back to the website. How and is that the checkout_success page?

3. Why not wait to post the data into the tables until the payment has been successful. And at what point/page/trigger do I set up the customers email receipt? It seems to me that the customers email receipt could be triggered on load of the checkout_success page.

Please & thank you. Maybe there are some additional documents that I have missed and I can understand that there are many possible combinations for this depending on the payment gateway chosen.
