I’ve opened a topic about this issue, but since it is closed and won’t let me add something to it (although stated in the description), I’ll start a new one and hope you don’t mind.
Recently one of my clients complained about the auto redirect feature and confirmed my concern. A user is obviously given an option but has little or no time to react by clicking either the presented link or Checkout button. Payment processes are always sensitive, and I believe there should be no disturbing moments.
If you stick to your decision and the process must be auto redirect – would it be possible to hide the interim page, so that the user does not get confused? Please note the attached GIF.
